    Front derailleur clamp size for NRS

    Just picked up a 2004 Fall NRS composite 2. It was a steal for $1500, but want to replace all the LX parts with 960 XTR stuff. What is the front derailleur clamp size on the NRS composite frames? Is is 34.9 like the old NRS frames. Looks like a great ride so far, hope the upgrades do great things.

    NICE! Congrast!!!!

    I'm not sure if the carbon frame's are the same or not, but you can make sure yourself. Take off the FD, then look inside the band (the band is that part that actually wraps around the seat tube). The size should be engraved in there.

    If you do check then please post back with what it is, just for future referencing.

    Enjoy!

    yes, 34.9mm. despite seatpost being 27.2mm (unlike the Aluxxx frames, the top of the carbon ones tapers in right up the top).

    nice ride.
