Hi

I'm a new member on here , I have come via retrobike where I have been a member for a few years.

Picked up an aqua fade Yo in need of of a new seat tube at the weekend , It arrived yesterday and was posted on to Kevin Winter in Durham today for its new tube , hes going to give me an option on seat tube sizes once its arrived.

Will post updates once when its back.

It'd be neater to go bigger than smaller, IMHO. A 27.2 Yo just seems wrong.

good job but why 30.0? (a rather unusual size )

Default Yo tube size

Unable to get 29.4 so it was either 27.2 ,30.6 or 30.0 .

I went for 30.0 as it was closest to the original .
