Found a brand new 2003 X-Cal frame from a shop in Canada that I'm gonna build up next week. Can anyone help me out with a few specs to help me order some parts? Thanks!

Bottom Bracket size?
Seatpost size?
Front Derailleur size/pull/swing?

Also wanted to say thanks to the thread contributors on "Where to buy the 29" goodness?". I basically started phoning shops that were in that list until I found an available frame.

front derailer

I forget how big around, but you must have a top pull/top swing front derailer. If you do a search this has been discussed on this board previously, and if you do a google search for shimano top pull/top swing I am pretty sure you will find stuff like this

The clearance between the tire and seat tube is so tight, you have to have cable go way out to the side of seat tube to meet with the toppull/top swing der.
