I have a 2008 Kona Shred and need a new seat post but I don't know what size to get.
On the post itself there is 2 different numbers one says 7.0 and the other say's 30.0 and on the seat clamp it says 35?
Any ideas, I think it is 30.0 but just wanted to double check before I ordered a new one.

Cool, cheers. Do you have a kona shred then?

No, but out of the numbers you posted 30.0mm is the only one that makes sense.

Yeah thats what I thought but it seems a bit odd because it is quite small and on the side and doesn't say mm after it but says E. and the 7.0 is more prominant but you don't seem to get seat posts that size.

Kona is one of the few to use the 30.00 size, so that would make sense Wink

Thanks mate, that is a usefull website there. I'll probably get a carbon fiber RaceFace one as the thread in clamp on my kona one has striped and carbon fiber is lighter.

30.9mm will not fit if that seat tube is 30.0mm. seat posts cant be fudged

yeah it'll fit just use a big big hammer & give it 20-30 hard blows. careful not to smash it in too far though - that thing aint ever comin out..
