2008 Caffeine 29er Seat Clamp?
Still the same size as the 2007 listed in the FAQ?
2007 Caffeine (F29 for sure, other caffeines should be the same. Anyone?)
- seatpost sizes - 31.6mm
- seatclamp - 34.9mm
Just picked up a 29er 2 in Raw Hi-bright Friday.. only took around a week and a half for delivery after placing the order. So far got about 50 miles on it and love it, except planning on replacing the seatpost with something silver and a blue seat clamp to match up.
same size clamp for this year.
consider a thomson set back for the bike. either a 367 or if you run lots of post out, even a 410. the longer chainstays and steeper seat tube angle necessary for the f29 geometry position the rider slightly further forward than 26. a setback just gives you that extra room to be back a bit...which is good for the additional wheelie prowess the bigger wheels will afford you.
the bummer about the setback post is that it only comes in black if i remember correctly.
thomson had (at interbike) a 5mm seatpost clamp new for this year. it looks really low profile, strong, light. may only be in black also.
