Coke can shim did the trick, although I used diet coke as I think it's slimmer :wink:

Seatpost is now solid so just need to find some time for a ride

It seems that the seat cluster is the obvious distinctive area on these tange aero frames.

I got all very excited thinking I had found a match but not quite - closer inspection showed it to be the same as the one adam posted back in 2014

Well that took longer than it should have. Shortly after getting the frame I injured my shoulder so haven't been up to riding a road bike for over 6 months. Things finally on the improve. The other thing holding me up was the lack of a threaded headset. A forumite generously sent me not 1 but 2 headsets, so I was all out of excuses.

Found a bit of time yesterday to finish getting it together so I could take Dennis for a ride.

Very happy! Surprisingly generous clearances for 28mm tyres & rides beautifully.

Photo doesn't show it needs a good clean & polish.

Cheers and from that angle you can't tell that the right brake lever is ever so slightly higher than the left
