Seat tube I.D.

Does the Reynolds 531 seat tube I.D. vary. My newly acquired 1975 Mercian Superlite takes a 27.0 post perfectly.

Thank you.

Yes, you are correct on both counts. Actually I didn't meant to use the word "sandblasting" and the correct spelling is bubbling - my mistake.

I have Dia Compe 650 center pull brakes with Kool Stop shoes. A little pressure on the front lever causes the front end to pulsate badly. Just a little more pressure on the rear lever and the rear...

I presume that you mean both the chain stay bridge and the brake bridge. What method of clamping did you use? That's a gorgeous bike. BTW, I also have a Maclean Featherweight, 1957, KD403.

Yes, the frame is a 1951 R. O. Harrison Track. The stays look pretty hefty to me, not pencil thin. Thanks for your input.

Too much spread?

Will my Reynolds 531 frame withstand spreading the rear dropouts from 110mm to 120mm without a great risk of dimpling the stays? Anyone have experience with this?
