Looking at the build list for the aluminum bikes on their site it says 27.2mm but if you look in the user manual it says 31.6mm and 34.9mm for the fd.

What is correct ?

Thanks Andy

Is your frame with post mount or IS rear brake taps?

I have a feeling that there are two different versions of the Flash alloy frame. The one in the user manual has IS taps but the ones I have seen pictures of have the Post mounts and drop out as the Flash Carbon.

Seatpost goes inside the seatube, FD wraps around the outside, so will be different, and if the seat tube is hydroformed it could be larger at the bottom than the top anyway.........

Was in the LBS this morning. They have a 2011 F2 which has a post-mount back brake - the seatpost on this looks to be 27.2mm (without measuring).

HTH.
