    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.

    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.

    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?
