thanks guys :D
hed wheels is a sin to use them. Generally use normal wheels : ringle red front and BICI blue post whit mavic and ritchey OCR blu rims and nipples blu e red.
the fork is wonderful, but now on this bike I'll put a suspension fork, this fork Paduano will end on a Titus Eleven from 27.5 (or 650B).
I'm waiting the decals Syncros for stem and seatpost and then I will do more photos. :wink:

Hi!
Great bike and great set of pieces.
Can anybody tell me the exact size for the seat clamp?
I bought a Hope 28,6 clamp for my 18' Xizang, and the seatpost goes slightly (but clearly) down when I ride (27,2 Thomson seatpost)
Should I tighten harder, or change the size, or just change the seatpost and the bike? :lol:
Thanks in advance


I used a seatpost SYNCROS titanium from 27.2 and the original GT collar, :o

When i had my '92 Xizang i used a titanium Syncros post (27.2) and a titanium Specialized seatclamp with a Paul's 'BlueBalls' bolt. It never slipped. I still have the clamp (and maybe even the original GT clamp) and can double check the size.

I like a lot those HED wheels, but maybe in other bike.
I'm going mad trying to find some of them, but seems they don't appear.

Nice bike all the way, Adri.
