Not Necessarliy

It all depends on how the seat tube is butted/manipulated.
It would be best to measure the area where the f derailleur clamp will go.
Seatpost size and f derailleur clamp size are completely independant measurements.

That would be one super thin seat tube! Just measure the outside diameter of the seat tube at the clamp area.

34.9 mm is generally used by Specialized on their 30.9 seat post...you should be fine with that because I don't know too many people making/stocking binders in a 35.9...

cheers
