Hi all. I am talking to a builder about a custom steel frame that needs to be light and stiff (for road racing). He is recommending light tubes (Deda Zero, Columbus Life, or TT Ox Platinum) and the use of an OS down tube.
Question: I have heard that OS tubes have very thin walls and are prone to denting and such; is that true? And also, will such tubes give a harsh ride?
Thanks for your input.
