And 753 is (was) some exotic stuff. Reynolds required a special certificate to weld tubesets. At .3mm in the non-butted section, you don't wanna let this thing take a standing fall onto any hard edge.

I'm very pleased with the gear and the frame (especially for the price) but would love to know more about Richards bros. I hoping to compete with it in April (my first event).
