How to tell the difference between balloon and middleweight frames:
Put the seat post clamp on the post with the bolt on the back.
Lay the ruler on the seat stay tubes so it is even with the back of the clamp.
The ruler will be about 3/4 inch in back of the post.
The space between the seat stay tubes at this point is 1 inch on middleweight frames, and 1 9/16 inch or more on balloon tire frames.

This pic shows a Middleweight frame. The top edge of the tape measure shows the 1 inch gap between the seat stay tubes.


This pic shows a Balloon Tire frame. The top edge of the tape measure shows the 1 9/16 inch gap between the seat stay tubes.
Other Balloom Tire frames may have a gap bigger than 1 9/16 inch here.
