    titus racer x seat tube size ??

    I bought a 2004 racer x, actually for my wife.

    I was told it has a 30.9 seat tube size, so that is the size I bought.

    It does install but seams a little sloppy. I did tighten down seat tube clamp but its still not as tight as needed.

    The next size up tube is to large, so im not sure what to do.

    Is there a shim or something im missing for this frame?

    Im new to this frame so thats why I ask, the seat tube clamp is fully tight and both halfs are touching together and the little slot in the frame is not totally together but close.

    You very likely have the wrong size. I looked at a close up of that frame and if it has a 27.2 seatpost I'm doubtful that the seat tube itself is more than 30 mm in diameter. You need to get a good set of calipers or a micrometer and measure that seat tube.

    More than a few manufactuerers make collars in 30 mm as well as 29.5.

    The 2005's and earlier are 31.6
    The 2006's are 30.9


    Check this thread http://forums.mtbr.com/titus/racer-x...ze-155028.html and you would probably be better off asking in the Titus forum.
