Hey all, just a quick update
build's well in it's way & a magnet test does point to MT4 as suspected (sticks to lugs & seatstay only). Will get some pics up after the maiden voyage (hopefully) on Sunday...
Mine came with a 26.4 seatpost (and a very unhappy looking lug
) but I've now tried 26.6 & 26.8 shims (on a 25.4 post that I had spare) and 26.6 is a very tight but good fit - probably tight as it's been closed up too far, had to get brutal with a big lever
Also considering a a ti stem for it, but these frames use commercially pure ti & the finish on mine is kind of waxey and quite dark
Whereas most ti alloys I've seen are a very 'clean' & dry-looking light grey. So I'm just wondering if it'll be a good match?
Now I've seen inside the headtube I can say the original colour was definitely purple, so I'll have another read through the thread to try & figure out the year & model it would've been, unless anyone can tell me?
Very excited to get out on it soon!
