Lovely looking bike! Just a question.Does the Reynolds sticker say 853?I thought all the UK special editions were made of 631,or a different grade of Reynolds tubing?
Thanx Max

does say 853 yes, will check it out mate, the stickers are not original as the bike was originally white.

dekerf started using 853 back in 1997.....not sure if the uk limited was any different.

been thinking about changing a few things on the bike.

titanium flat bars
titanium seatpost
titanium seat clamp/non QR version

love the colour of bare titanium and think it would suit and also lighten up the bike.
