Ok, I'm switchin parts from a steel to a Ti frame. My X-Gen front der will fit either a 34.1 or 28.6 mm seat tube and the TI is 31.8 mm. the X-gen is also bottom swing and will interfere with the bottle cage.
the X-gen has worked fine and has low mileage and could be shimmed to fith the seat tube and i could probably also put spacers under the bottle cage to get that to fit as well.
I'm considering just getting a 32mm clamp XT top swing instead. It will definitely look and fit better, also a bit lighter. will I notice a performance increase or decrease?
any thoughts appreciated.
