    I have an '05 XLT 1.0; the BB shell on mine is 68mm -- simpler way to go is get an external.... I also use an X-Gen FD, clamps right on the seat tube, no prob.

    Red, eh? 2.0....

    I have an XLT 1.0, same year, and I'm a clydesdale (230# w/o gear); mine has stood up to 2 years of me hammering it....

    Your seat tube Q: are you after seatpost diameter, or FD clamp diameter? The X-Gen comes with spacers to fit pretty much anything, and the seatpost you need is a 27.2.

    Enjoy the ride -- the frame has been a Hummer H3 for me!
