I bought a new '04 Giant VT frame and I'm building it up. I need to know some information:

BB size
front derailleur size/style
seatpost size

I appreciate your help!

BB = 68mm shell width. Axle length depends on crankset used.

FD= 34.9mm ( 1 3/8") clamp, Top Swing, Bottom Pull - watch out trying to use the new Shimano "fit all size and pull" front derailleurs- the cable fixing bolt ends up pointing right into the swing arm and it is a real PITA to get to- I hunted around and found the previous XT FD and just got the correct clamp, swing and pull needed- the cable fixing bolt ends up on top.

Seat post- without using the shim is 30.8mm- sometimes a 30.9 will fit.
