I wonder how spiral reinforced SLX tubing can be compared to 753 ?

Its a 54 cm LANGLEY frame for anyone not bothered to look at the auction.

Hello,

I've not got a clue how it compares but googling it and it seems to suggest it does. It's certainly lighter than 531.

Thanks for the bump though.

sorry about the Langley instead of Langdale .
I happen to like SLX tubing (I have a few) and I am sure 753 is also very good tubing but I don't know how regular straight butted steel is the same as spiraled SLX (weight only? ) or just say it is columbus SLX ?

Also this eBay link is (was) in the wrong place (is it yours?) and the original post did not give enough Info IMO.
