    If u take the post out of the frame the size should be printed on it towards the bottom.
  • would have done that but i dont have the seat post that came with the bike thats why i am asking

    Try looking at the Gary Fisher Archives

    I think the Bitter starts in 05

  • looked at their site already but it dosent state the measurement from what i can see in the full spec bit just the brand of the seat post is given
    cheers any way mate
    might just get a ruler and have a stab at it

    Ruler is not accurate enough mate - there is 0.2mm difference between sizes. Take it to an LBS and get it measured accurately with Vernier Callipers.
