2004 Litespeed going with a larger seatpost?(1 post)

2004 Litespeed going with a larger seatpost?PsyDoc

The "Litespeed" preview indicates that several models (i.e., Tuscany, Ultimate, and Sienna) are going with an oversized 31.6 seat tube diameter in an attempt to add BB stiffness. Does this mean they are going with a larger seatpost diameter as well or will they use an insert to get it to 27.2?

Also, do you think that Shimano placed the 2004 DA bearings outside the BB in an attempt to keep BB shells the same size? I have heard there has been "talk" about enlarging the BB shell in order to accommodate larger bearing sizes.
