Following on from my aborted Funk build (did not love it when I saw it, sold it on), I bought a 17" Ozone from the 'Bay (from a previous RB member). It may be too small, but needed a project to keep me sane. This was the frame that I remember hanging in the LBS in Manchester for £squillions and what I originally wanted. Turned up today and I love it already. Had purple drop outs and decals, which had to be changed as I couldn't live with purple. Frame was in OK condition for age, but needed coating.

Ta-Dah! Seat tube seems huge, 34mm outside diameter, about 31mm inside. Gutted because I watched a 30.9mm Thomson layback seat post go on the Bay the other day for less than £30...

Needs a new seat clamp or a bolt at least and non-drive side of the BB is fairly chewed up. Will take it out and see what I need.

Is that a 1.25" head tube?

If so, I have a nice polished Answer Atak stem and Manitou Sport forks if you're interested...

Nice try Bob, it is a mighty big headtube, but am going down the spacer route. I have a Slamma Jamma NOS 1 1/8" headset, Thomson stem and a gorgeous set of Mani Comps hot to trot!

Thinking about stripping the dropouts and polishing them, depending upon the finish.

Don't know much about seatclamps - do you just get the next highest one and tighten it up? Same with seatposts - looks around 31mm, so should I get a 30.9mm?
