Colnago C-40 seat post clamp diameter(4 posts)

After messing around several times trying to get my seat height right I managed to strip the threads on the clamp.
I tried to find another barrel nut, but no one has them in that small size. Besides sending away for a very expensive Colnago seat post clamp does anyone know the diameter of the seat tube insertion point so I could get another brand to replace it. I am away from home right now and can not measure it myself. Help!!!!

As I remember the seat clamp size is a very common size (31.6?) readily available at your LBS. I once had to use a non C40 seat clamp because the bolt nut got lost.

Mine measures 1.268 inches or 32.2mm. 31.8mm would be a standard 1.250 inch size. Perhaps a 31.8mm can be squeezed on, but it won't be a perfect fit.
Thanks for your timethdrk1

Thank you C-40 and Ken. I am back home now and I will try a 32mm Campagnolo seatpost clamp.
