^^ I bought one of those seats to use on a my vintage Schwinn bmx for riding in the driveway with the kids. It is more comfortable than the original hard plastic seat. A friend bought one for a road bike, and it broke on the third ride.

I got a dumb question but being a TT newb... Is that front tire high pressure? It seems like it would need to be.

Slow - Ride, did you ever get that seatpost diameter measured out? Use metric if you have the capability, otherwise I can convert too.

not yet still hunting for my calipers to measure it.
25.4 seat post fits but a little lose. would work with a slim business card size shim. out side measure's 1.155. trouble is top of seat tube is mangled not perfectly round. so inside hard to get a read.

Those Tioga Powerblocks are good tires. I used one on the front of my Four-gone Conclusion Muscle bike BO build a few years back, in the 24" version. @Slow-Rider , I sent you a message in Conversations about seat posts, etc. (It's that little envelope in the top right of the menu bar).

And there are quite a few 32H 600 hubs on ebay when you search "vintage Shimano 600 hubs"
