What's the difference? If I remember correctly, is the SL lighter tubing. I am currently looking at a LOVELY bike with SL tubing but am very 'lard-arse' at present! Will it take the more portly gentleman's build?

Cheers, Gents. Doesn't look good for lard arses!

Now, I'm SURE MXL tubing would be fine?!?!? ANYONE?
