    Mark I can check on wednesday but I think there is a black 27.2 thomson post for $20 bucks at my local sports recycler. Probably just a few bucks to ship it.

    Thank you kindly, but I have a silver Thomson for it. At the time I took that photo I had yet to figure out why the seat tube wasn't accepting the post. You can read all about it by clicking the photo there. I'll give you a spoiler: it's not a very interesting read. There is a link to my WTB list in there, if you would like to check it out.

    Hey Zach: I think the problem here is the <img src="http://www.flickr.com/photos/zachdluchs/4202628006/"></img> tag. Image tags don't require closing; the image is contained within the main tag. But the main IMG SRC tag also looks wrong; the picture itself should be something like [the_name_of_my_bike_photo].jpg.

    I opened the photo up in a new window, and I got this address: http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4038/4202628006_3f039da072_o.jpg. Let's try that:

    Hi, ever'body! I'm Dr. Nick!

    This is the bike I wish I could be riding:



    but it's too icy, so I'm riding this one, pared down with studded tires:



    I really gotta take new pics. It's not much like that at all any more, from a functional standpoint.

    I'll buy that if you would be willing to pick it up from the sports recycler.

    Ha, there should be a "I found this for sale cheap, does anyone want it?" thread.

    Haha oh, that is pretty bad.
    I don't even need it, I just wanted to have it in case I ever acquire a frame that calls for a 27.2 seat post. You can snag it you please.

    hi, i've always checked this site habitually, but just started reading/posting on the forums.

    here's my bike after this morning's commute. Skinny tires made me fall 3 times. Going around a corner i fell and slid for about 15 meters, which was actually really fun :)
