Nice.
I have just got a MT4 frame and looking forward to building it up.
Thinking of a retro colour theme, so 3DV headset and seatppst to match the Grafton Topline 3DV cranks I have.
Out of interest what is your seat post 26mm? Mine has no markings and I want to replace it. There seems to be confusion when searching -26mm;26.4mm; &26.6mm!


Thanks. I think 3DV is a great colour for this frame. My frame takes a 26.4 seat post, but as you can see I'm using a shimmed USE 25.0 post.

I think it depends a lot on the seat tube material used. Are yours also MT4 frames?

Yes, you are right, pulled the original XC-Pro seat post out of my Quantum and found it was 26.4

I know it is a road bike...

But here is my Quantum. Bought from a fellow RB'er and stripped to allow a deep clean and preservation. Break out the Autosol!
