I would like to upgrade my seatpost to a quality seatpost in the $40-$60 price range. I can't seem to find anything that comes in a 27.0 size. All the nice ones seem to be 27.2. Any ideas or suggestions

You can get a thomson seatpost, which is about as nice as they get, for $70.00 in that size. Try speedgoat.com, their price includes shipping.
ditto the ThomsonTig

Thomson is well made and has excellent adjustment. Among the very best.
quality but little setback...C-40

Even the setback model does not have as much setback as a traditional road seatpost. Watch out if you have the saddle moved back very far. It's easy to run out of travel.

The straight-up model will move the saddle forward like changing the the seat tube angle by almost 2 degrees.
Ditto on Speedgoat and Thomsonmtnpat

also, as mentioned below, the Thomson "setback" is not really a setback at all.
I use one on my mtn bike and it has the same geometry as the "standard" Ritchey (Kalloy) seatpost it replaced.

Thomson and Speedgoat - both top quality operations!!!
