    Can someone please explain titanium tubing sizing to me? For example a
    Litespeed Classic comes with 3AL/2.5V titanium tubing and Douglas
    Precision comes with 6AL/4V titanium tubing. What do the numbers mean
    and what sizes are used by other manufacturers?
    I figure it has something to do with wall thickness and weight.


    ---thanks Brink
