I finally got my replacement warranty frame:

They gave me a newer model frame with a different (smaller) seat tube dia. Supposedly I need a 26.8 mm seat post. What size collar and front derailieur do I need? I am waiting to hear back from Marin also.

Also I am considering going with an 1x8 system and scrapping the front mech altogether. I've gone without the granny gear out of necessity before. So while the local climbs will be harder, they will still be doable. Thoughts?
