Or if that long URL doesn't work:
Another, with a little more about Bilenky. That Eagle set-up will help Boris with the massive hills in London. Columbus tubes. I would have looked for some NOS True Temper for the whole USA thing.

I don't remember True Temper having great bike tubes. Reynolds 853 oversize is the stuff of the God's.

I use more steel tube than you and I'd take later alloys of
TT over Reynolds 853 any day.

Well, I haven't actually worked with any modern tubing. I have just ridden bike made from them. Columbus tubing was so stiff it would break your teeth on the roads around here whereas the 853 oversize Pro T rides very well. I have seen bikes made from True Temper but never ridden one. And bikes my size need to have oversize tubes and the TT bikes I have seen are all standard size tubes.
