    Is Panasonic Bike use Columbus TSX tubing?

    I have seen a Tommaso frame is similar to a Panasonic frame. I wonder what steel made out of a Panasonic frame. I have a Panasonic bike but do not know what model it is. Check my other posts and you will find some info about my bike.

    Never heard of one using TSX.Some used columbus sl/sp,but most were Japaneese stuff.

    I think they were all Tange/Prestige from the ones I've seen.

    The ones I've seen have run the gamut of the Tange line. I believe Tange had five levels of steel, with "1" being the best and "5" the plainest. The 80's Panasonics I've seen have been very nice bikes, possibly the nicest Japanese bikes I've seen.

    Well atually, the catalogue I have list Columbus SL/SP ,Tange champion 1 and 2, Tange maganloy Tange 1000 and 900, generic cromo and Hi-ten. The product line ranged from good stuff with Campy and Shimano DA down to bottom of the barrel with corresponding tubesets.Never saw or hear of a Prestige one myself.
