How do I know my bike seat post size?
To measure, you place the rod inside the seat tube and match the diameter. The rods are designed to have an increasing diameter from one end to the other. Therefore, the correct reading, which matches, is the one above the end of the seat tube.
What is the standard bicycle seat post size?
The dimensions of the seat tube can vary from bicycle to bicycle, so when choosing a seatpost, it’s important to get the correct diameter. The most common diameter is probably 27.2mm, but other sizes between 21.15 and 35mm are often found, as well. Seatposts also vary in length.
What seat clamp size do I need?
Note: The seat clamp diameter needs to match the diameter of your seat tube rather than your seatpost, which is a little smaller. For example, a 27.2mm seatpost (a size commonly found on road bikes) fits inside a 28.6mm diameter seat tube, so it’s a 28.6mm clamp you need.
Are bike seatposts universal?
Are bike seats universal? Yes, most modern bike seats are universal and can be interchanged with different seat posts. It’s best to check the number of rails and the rail width on your saddle to ensure a correct fit to the seat adapter.

Can you cut a bike seatpost?
