Last week, I sort of encouraged myself to see what's in the shed after years of neglecting my old hobby of the dated cycling machine. First up is this well used Rossin frame, for which I would like to try a full make over with a respray (my first). But first I want to know if it will be worth it and if the frame is still sound. I measured some things and it seems the frame is still straight as can be, but then I tried to fit a 27.2 seat post, which went in only by 5cm or so. After that, only brute force would work. A 27.0 went in more the way it should, but that had a little slack at the top 5 cm. I did not tighten the clamp yet, but I do wonder if this may be a sign of future trouble?
Lousy pic is a few years old btw, this mavic groupe may answer my question of the post size, but it's hidden in the back of the shed somewhere and I've not bothered yet to dig it out.
