Seldom see FIR rims, and I always like 'em when I do.

Very nearly the Ti framed wish list going on there.

Who made those?

Was it the usual suspects?

Presuming they didn't have facilities to make them in-house did they?

Looks nice btw!

The '93 catalogue just says they're aerospace grade, which I'm assuming is 3/2.5. I presume that it was someone like Litespeed or Sandvik that made them but I'm not sure. They definitely weren't made by Saracen themselves though.

Thats pretty heavy, so tubes will be unbutted, 3.64 lbs, could be Sandvik or Wast European. A litespeed or Merlin would be more like 1400 or less. Still a really nice frame though, just can't beat Ti!

That's what I thought. As it's a '94 it was a bit before DB Ti tubes became more common on anything other than high-end Ti frames like Merlin, etc iIrc.
