Sorry a mixture all the Brit stuff would have been available in 26" & 27" at this time. This was at the tail end of the change over period. As for the Continental's it depended on that particular manufacture. You would have to ask our foremost experts like Hilary, Alex or Peter who would most definately have catalogues etc. and trade in these items everyday.

Best wishes and be lucky. Michael Butler Huntingdon UK.
