Guys,

who can tell me more about this.
Headset is 1" but what is the size of the seatpost?
And what year would this be? (TFM006)

The seatpostsize looks smaller then my Yo Eddy was,..so would it be a 26,4 then?

Thanks

Bas

yeah agree, should be 29.4.
those pics seem to show a silver shim lipped over the seatpost clamp.
i wouldn't expect to see a green seal washer used for a water seal..........i dont think the ti models had them........a guess mind.

reckon with that configuration of the serial number, autumn '95.
likely to be from the first batch out from the NY factory.

No I am not :lol:

okay okay,..it will be a syncros seatpost i guess but i want to go for a different route this time.

I would like to take the IRD Interloc, White Industries path this time, and maybe some paul,..Onza,...i do not know yet, i do not want to build the same bike over and over again based on a different frame
