    SL Frame Q's

    Bought a used 17" SL frame for my wife, it has the older style swing arm. The bike should be shipped today but want to have all the parts for a quick turn build. Few q's:

    FD: Top pull, but what diameter and swing?
    BB: What Diameter and length?
    Seat Post: What Diameter?

    Thanks in advance.

    disregard, didn't see the info on the website first go around, unless the front triangle has changed significantly.

    Thanks in advance.

    The pre-07 SL frames are different than the current model frames.
    Here's the info you requested:

    FD: TP,TS Edit: 31.8 mm derailleur clamp size
    BB: 68mm shell width (spindle length depends upon the crankset you intend to use)
    SP: 27.2mm (seatpost clamp is 31.8/32mm)
    Recommended fork travel: 80-100mm

    Ask if you have any other questions.
