Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Question for Kilo TT owners. What sized seatclamp do you use?

I measured my current one on the inside with digital calipers and it came out to be 29.25mm.

I want to get a different colored one and am puzzled as to what the nearest size is offered out there?

Don't measure the seatpost clamp, it expands a little when a seatpost is inserted in it; measure your seatpost instead.

That's odd advice because taking calipers to the seatpost would give you a measurement of 28.6, leaving you with absolutely no indication of what size clamp you'd need.

Handsome is right...it's 30.0mm.
