Hey everyone.

Thought I'd give this bike building thing a go.

Here's some pics of it at the start:

Didn't like the red detailing on the frame.

Decided to remove it.

The end result looks much cleaner.

Yes at the bottom of the seat tube near bb. Commom problem. The other place for them to snap was at the base of the seat tower.
The uSA made ones are better for it (<3000/3.0) but not immune.

I'm currently finishing off my xcr2000, I'll put some pictures up tomorrow. I like the removed red decals.

Does anyone know the seat post dia. for the 1000?

This was all I could find:

from: http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=54925

The thing is the fork tube (28.6mm) fits in there and it's too narrow.

Any help would be appreciated.
