    Think it may have odd seatpost size 30.0mm.

    I got one of those 2010 frames. as above the seatpost size is 30.0, changed to 30.9 for the 2013 model. Not many seatposts around in that size. Thruvative do one but it’s only 350mm long i think. can always use a 27.2 with a shim.

    nice bikes but build up heavy. size up quite small and are very chuckable/flickable. Rear sus not the most plush but does pedal well. quite limited tyre clearance on the rear (diameter not width).

    good play bike for the money but wouldn’texpect to do big miles on one

    I know nothing of these frames except an old riding buddy rode the Grand Raid Crystalp on one!

    Big miles?
    Mine has recently done Aviemore to Blair Atholl over Big Mac, Etchachan, Derry and down the Tilt in a day. Does that count?
    These do build up heavy but climb surprisingly well, especially going up and over big rocky stuff like boulder step ups. Great fun and like Andy’s suggestion above, mine has a 27.2 Thomson post shimmed into the frame. Plenty of room around a 2.5 High Roller at the back.

    Not for big miles… Oops! I’ve done lots and lots and lots of miles on mine this season 🙂 I love that bike.
    As said 2013 was 30.9 not 30.0 as it was before. Mines lasted up to two seasons guiding, the frame is the only original bit as everything else broke.

    Have Cove not OK’d boring out the seattube to 30.9? Don’t take my word for it but I’m sure I’ve read that on Teh Internetz.

    Northwind – not sure if it’s been approved by Cove (I.e. If you had a frame break after reaming would it impact on warrantee?) but I have had my Cove reamed up to 30.9 by 18bikes and it’s been fine for over 12months. My frame was a few years old though so out of warrantee anyway.

    There is info on their website about doing this for Cove bikes and a few other brands too.

    I have an email from Steve @ Cove bikes saying that it is fine to ream it out to 30.9 (I had my local bike shop do mine). He said that is what they are doing to the new frames anyway.

    Must just be my legs then. 30 miles on mine and I’m knackered! I’ve got a 2:4 advantage on the rear and its almost shaving the seatstay bridge. Interesting about teaming the seattube out. Tempted to do mine but running a lot of seatpin!
