can someone go indepth to tell me the difference between the Columbus Cromor and SL frame. I know SL is better but i want to know the differences including weight
From what I can tell there isn't alot of difference
between the tubesets other than the way they
For Columbus SL and SLX (Seamless):
The tubes are produced from a solid billet of steel pierced and
drawn to the necessary dimensions.
Columbus Cromor (seamed):
Seamed tubes are produced by rolling sheet into a tube and
welding it up. The resulting pipe is then drawn down and cold
worked to its final dimensions; the seam is worked
into the tube and becomes invisible to all except electron
I don't think there is a significant weight difference
in the 2 tubesets.
