does that say 853 tubes? Never tried one of those.
No point in asking 'any good' since you have just chosen to buy it you obviously think so. But whats so special to make you choose this one?

Any progress with this yet? :)

Looks bigger than 18" , might just be the camera angle though, is it measured to tt or to top of seat tube?
