Just been into Chevin Cycles in Otley who loved the frame. They helped me out by making a special bolt for the seatclamp while I waited and only charged £1.50 for it. They loved the frame and are going to check out RetroBike. Some great retro memories were shared.

Checked with a micrometer the seat tube and it is a 27.2mm size of post needed so my X-Lite metal matrix one will fit.

I'm in two minds as to if I am going to build the whole bike tonight for the national ride tomorrow. The front mech is the only problem. I have a XT front mech but its the size larger than the one I need. If i can make a shim it could be possible to build the bike for tomorrow.

Pop back to the bike shop, they normally have shims knocking around from mechs they have fitted. I've got them for free in the past.
