Steel is real people.
Call me a brit snob if you will, but I really can't buy something that isn't Reynolds. I mean, it would be like buying your gran a twinset from Bejing Army Surplus.
My daily hack: Raleigh team cross bike. 708 tubing, Shimano mix.

Tidy collection there. Like the neo-retro Powell.

Reynolds is good stuff but I also feel there's a place for Columbus :wink:
