Ahoy ! Re: Zeus

T'other day, someone, out of the blue asked me about correct diameter for the seat pin and also what the threading is on the bb shell.

The inquisitor wanted to assume 27.2 and Brit bb threading.

I honestly couldn't remember what Zeus used; although, from my vague sense of CR list discussion I think there were a variety of diameters and bb threadings (even including French bb's and even hubs).

Any opinions ?

Thank you.

Richard:

Generally, French threads, Metric tubing, and a 26.6 or 26.8 mm post (if butted Reynolds (or other) in the main triangle). If not butted tubing, then the post can be lots of other sizes' like 25.8, 26.0, or 26.2 for example.
