Thanks. :)

I polished the frame last night and pulled apart the forks. Just waiting on some new elastomers so I can get the forks back together and then I can actually start building. I also discovered that the integrated seat binder is stripped so I'll need to use a through-bolt. :evil:


It's a pity you polished the frame : the particularity of a Grove ti frame, is… to be painted… :?

Salut, you have to take care...my Grove Titanium have both 27,4 mm (seatpost / American classic and syncros Titan). I think yours have the same.

Nooooo! I have a nice silver Control Tech post in 27.2 that would be perfect. I tried it in the seat tube and didn't notice any wobble. Maybe I need to check again.
