my beater has gone to the dogs and i'm just about ready to bite the bullet on a kilo.

can anyone tell me, does the wheel clear the downtube for barspins with a 700?
imgs would be sweet also.

No dice on barspins with the stock setup.

So... 6'1" with short legs (32" inseam) = would fit 53cm?

I tried a 56cm C-T Surly Steamroller the other day and it fit me perfectly!

Should I base my decision on this?

I saw a 57cm in person the other day and it was definitely way too tall for me. I am now basically in between the 55cm and the 53cm, but according to specs, leaning more towards the 53cm. Hmm..

yeah. my 54 cm does in fact have a 30.5" stand over (KHS geo) and not a 31" stand over like the BD says.

EDIT: i am an idiot, I thought I was in the Windsor Hour thread and thought Fuji Track when I saw KHS.

spraypaint does wonders on seatpost clamps.

Thanks, I found it on ebay from a seller named something like GW Salvage, very inexpensive. And dddave, I think I will spraypaint the clamp, though I was too nervous to paint the post, thanks!

I'm 6'0" and I have a 33" inseam. I preorderd the 55 c-c (58 c-t) with a standover of 31.7".

I guess I just want to double check if I have the right size because I'm confused with the discrepancies between BD's measurements and Mercier's measurements.

I'm thinking about whether or not I should change my order and go for the 53 c-c (56 c-t) with the standover of 31" just to be safe. I'm leaning more towards just leaving my order though.

Any opinions? Thanks.

The Salsa clamp is nice, but a bit pricey for a clamp. Hey... you only live once.
