I've got a question about frames. I have two that I'm considering using for a tourer for a friend. One is a standard Carbon Steel frame from a Raleigh 3 speed roadster, the other is a Reynolds 531 road frame.
Trouble with the 531 frame, is that the clearances on the tyres are a lot tighter for tyres and fenders. The roadster frame has more leeway, but weight is a prime consideration, as we'll be flying with the bike.
Can someone tell me how much difference there will be weightwise between the two frames. I'd just weigh them, but the frames are still bikes, and I don;t fancy stripping them both to the metal to find out.
