Well, to confuse matters the USE shim I have in mine that allows what I'd call a perfect fit is a 27.0. I'll measure the post on my 2 later.

I've seen similar discussions over Zaskars. Mine has it's original 26.8mm seat post, which fits perfectly, but I'm sure other people have said that a 27.0mm fits their frames better.

Never simple is it!

Just checked my 2 and that measures as 27.0.

The post is a tighter fit in the 2 (even though there is evidence of maybe a previously stuck post in that) than it is in my 1 frame but only ever so slightly.

Dilemma time.

RED

or

BLUE

for headset, bolts, rear hub (I have a black Ringle front already)?

Decisions, decisions....

I'd vote red too to tie in with your Judys and saddle.

Judy's will be staying, but probably going for a black Flite.

Nice to see it coming along Chris. Oh and red headset to match the red on the Judy DHs!
