    Where to buy Steel Frame tubing?

    I'm looking around trying to find steel Reynolds or Colombus tubing for my first custom frame build and I'm having trouble finding an online retailer.


    And while we're at it, what about online retailers for other frame materials? Like aluminum or titanium?

    I've heard you can buy Reynolds frame tube kits, but can't seem to find them online

    Have you read any of the frame building websites? They usually link to vendors. Hell, if you look-up vendors with Google or Wikipedia you can probably find distributors. Unfortunately, bicycle tubing is still sold old-school: you're mostly likely going to have to make phone calls to complete a purchase.

    For tubing, try Henry James, Nova Cycle Supply, or UBI. Fairing is the US distributed for Reynolds tubing; I don't know of anyone who sells it through an on-line store. Kirk Pacenti sells lugs and Columbus tubing. His on-line store isn't very complete, so you may have to call or e-mail.

    Strawberry cycles does Reynolds frame kits and very nice wishbone stays. For True Temper tubing, you could try Henry James. They do sell kits too. Ceeway might be worth a shot too.
