Quite a lot of Orange bikes were fitted with the Orange Lite Stick which was a 26.4mm post, but almost none of their bikes were that size, so they were mostly shimmed. what bike is it for?

Bike is a C16-r (clockwork.

Aye, I'l need to measure for sure but i was pretty sure all tubes on the earlier frames are 29.6mm shimmed to 26.4mm. Theres a shim fitted and although I dont know the exact year it came with a pace rc35 kevlar and black stx cantis and black LX rear.
Thats the reasoning :lol:

1993 or 4 :? although someone here can date those components to approximate year.

Either way I cant check without having an actual 26.4mm post here to try.

I've got a Stalk or Stalk lite stems to choose from & some Purple, albeit faded 'Hot Rod' bars (uncut). PM me if this is of interest.

I've got an Orange Sk8 stem & a pair of worn hot rod bars that would be period correct for this off my E3. I'm looking for an earlier stalk so if you don't have minor_LEGEND's I may enquire about it

I've now been given a seatpost size of 26.8mm not 26.4. :)

I'll try to find out for sure and measuring also.

If it’s a 26.8 you need, I have a decent black XT post.
