    What Tubing is this?

    I really like the look of old school, thin (compared to current product) tubing. What size are the tubes on this Bruce Gordon frame?

    It looks like pre-OS standard sized tubing.

    Seat Tube: 28.6 mm O.D.

    Down Tube: 28.6 mm O.D.

    Top Tube: 25.4 mm O.D.

    Head Tube: 30.2 mm O.D.

    It's impossible to tell from looking at the photo what O.D., cross-section, and taper the stays are.

    It is a bike I built for the 2005 Tokyo Handmade Bicycle Show.
    I was the first and only American to exhibit.
    I was honored to win first prize in its catagory - especially because of the caliber of the other exhibitors, including Nagasawa, Toei, etc.

    It is 10 Speed Dura Ace Equipped,
    with Rack, Fenders, and Lights
    Seat Tube (center to center) - 54cm
    Top Tube - 56cm
    Stem Length - 11cm

    The frame is built with Traditional Reynolds 531 tubing
    1" top tube, 1 1/8" down tube and 16mm seatstays.

    And if you are interested it is for sale for $7000

    There are other Show bikes for sale at my page at:

    Regards,
    Bruce Gordon

    I really like the detail of the front rack and the toe clips.
