I think it was 2.75" ID or 2.5"
Definitely bigger than 2"

(Sorry for short reply: mobile right now)

prend thanks for going through that with me. that sounds like much more in my relm of what i think can be done as i have not had any sort of training with carbon. I thank all of you guys for your comments. If i can get it to last 500 miles i would be really happy with that. and to cut 28 grams total i am loving that. Thanks again

2:1 for sure, medium wall I believe. I'm not with the bike at the moment and away from home by several hundred miles, so this is all from memory.

That might work, even though it is 3" ID. Give it a shot!

Unfortunately I do not remember where I bought my heat shrink tubing, it has been quite some time since I purchased a few meters worth of it. It was some tech/computer website though, not eBay.

All orders came out great.
