Do any owners of the above bike or anyone in general know what the diameter/circumference of the seat tube is so I can order a clamp on front derailler.
I have looked and can,t find anything.The frame is on its way and I would like to order bits before it gets here rather than wait.
cheers.

    What size is the seatpost? It'll be engraved / stamped on it:
    If it's 27.2mm, it'll need a 31.8mm clamp
    If it's 31.6mm it'll need a 34.9 clamp
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Havn,t got the frame yet Monty but the seat post is 31.6mm so what you say makes good sense.
    Thank you.

    Read this for an easy way to check when your frame actually arrives.
