new steel alloy question...

I'm just curious on this and figured I'd ask, as I'm an old SLX kinda guy.

Assuming same size frame, and geometry..

What is the difference in weight between OX Plat and S3?

It's going to depend on the tubeset. The S3 stuff that I've seen has a teardrop top tube and an oval-round-oval downtube with slightly different buttings than the OX. Weight difference is going to be really small (a few ounces), but with the OX, you can use lugs and the S3 stuff that I've seen is oddball shaped, so you can't.

Is this enough of a non-answer?

Sounds ok to me?! I kinda figured it was a small difference. Was just curious.
