Thanks Nick,

Yep I think Gara was their low end tubing, but beggars can't be choosers :)

I might have to get a plain Columbus tubing sticker if not available.

The GB ones on Lloyd's are the correct ones, they have an outline and the head tube has a Laurel which theirs doesn't.

I like immaculate Kit Nick, can't stand scratches or dirt, so they have got to be sorted. 8)

I'd always speak to Lloyds too - their online catalogue (though immense) does not include absolutely everything they do.

Personally, I like Gara, not the lightest but builds a nice strong frame, I have a late 90's Olmo built from it.

Thanks Nick, I have a feeling that was the reason it was used on this track frame for stiffness as weight is not so important.
