Hi all

I've picked up a lava dome frame and can anyone tell me the front mech size and is it top or bottom pull?

Cheers

Matt

28.6 will be the size. I think they were all bottom pull until 97/98

Usually 27.0mm but some on here have said theirs are 28.6. All mine were 27mm.

You will also find the odd annoying one like mine which takes 27.2. Typically the seat tube ovalizes a little during fabrication, hence 27.0 although the nominal is probably 27.2 before welding.
