I want to buy the Thomson Elite seatpost...

I want to buy the Thomson Elite seatpost for my son for his Surly Steamroller - can anyone recommend which size he'll need? If it helps, he's 6'3"; ridges about 14 mi each day commuting in the city. Thanks!

From what I can tell, the Steamroller uses a 27.2mm diameter seatpost. Lengthwise, it's usually pretty smart to opt for the longest version and cut the excess off, but at 6'3", he may not need to. What a great gift, can I put you in touch with my mom so you can coach her a bit?

Thanks KC! I'll go for what you recommend. He's good about being specific - to a point - with gift suggestions :)
