    Where to get Reynolds 953?

    I've looked at all the usual suspects (including the ones in the sticky here) and can't find any sources at all...

    Fairing Industrial should be able to get it if they don't have it in stock.

    They don't sell to folks without business licenses, as far as I can tell. That's not the end of the world, but I'd rather not bug friends about ordering stuff for me if I can help it.

    Ask Peter at ceeway.com about it. He has offered to get Reynolds tubes for me in the past. He stocks some Reynolds fork blades.

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    Looked at Strawberry's website; nothing offered. Think they're worth contacting?

    I've talked to Huai Chen a couple of times at NAHBS and he might be able to give you the names of established customers who would be willing to place an order for you.

    I haven't used Reynolds for a while, but they used to be willing to sell directly from the factory with a minimum order of something like $500.

    OTOH, if you haven't developed channels sufficient to find 953, have to developed the licks already to to work with it? No snark intended, but a question you should ask yourself.
