just asking if anyone can help me with the correct size Dog Fang for a Pinarello Prince Carbon and a Colnago C40.
I have read somewhere that one cant be fitted to the Prince but thought i would ask your advice, thanks

    The C40 has a 28.0mm seapost size so the OD of the seattube is unlikely to be the standard 31.8mm. likewise, I guess the Prince uses a 31.6mm post and therefore the seattube is around 35mm if it were round - but these days many aren't so unless you get creative with a cut-down Dog Fang and some heavy-duty double sided tape, it won't fit.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    You can get Dog Fangs in 28.6 mm, 31.8 mm and 34.9 mm sizes from Ribble Cycles so the size shouldn't be a problem, though the shape might be.
