    REYNOLDS 631 vs. DECCADI

    Thinking about getting a new frame:

    I may have access to one of the IRO group buy frames with DECCADI, but the Mark V Pro (631) also seems sweet. Which tubeset is better? Deccadi?

    The pro is not drilled and has no brazeons which I like.
    Any thoughts, opinions, etc?

    thanks

    You won't be able to tell the difference between the tubesets.

    the GB frame does not have any brazeons either, if that helps.

    I thought the GB frame was a beast, especially the fork. But, more likely than not, you won't be able to tell the difference.

    Does anyone know what grade of DECCADI the BFGB is made from? I have searched the threads for the answer and could not find it.

    Thanks. It was becoming annoying. Though a search brought this up. http://finetoothcog.com/bike_posts/cached/32326

    I know Michi makes good parts and Cleaste is an awesome color, but I just can't swing $275.

    You mean that you want the 1 and 1/8, As being 1" has nothing to do with being threaded or threadless

    He obviously knows what he's talking about, and is using the common colloquial term that we all understand. You're just trying to make a weak semantic argument, so please stop.

    you should have just stopped riding so you could focus on color coordination

    Seeing as the IRO GB frame did not come with a 1" threadless option, 1 1/8" is the only other choice..

    i'm thrilled to death with my 631 frame (sputnik). light, stiff enough to be efficient, flexy enough to be comfortable, affordable. i also have a columbus EL-OS geared bike which is heavier and hella stiff. can't speak to the d-stuff. still is rill!

    It doesn't matter.

    One of my favorite bikes is made out of 531 and a few decades old.

    My other favorite bike is made from whatever tubes the framebuilder had hanging around when he built it for me. I have no idea what they are, other than 'steel'. Rides great, though.

    Don't get so hung up on materials, as long as it's not gaspipe you'll be fine.

    My IRO GB frameset was heavier than my KHS Flite/Tange track fork. And that's just Reynolds 520.

    the tubing on the group buy is way too flexy for my tastes.

    if you actually care, i made an update in the main thread... swapped the 140mm stem & steel drops out for stiff ass shorter stem + aluminum bullhorns, and it feels much better... it'll do until i find something else i like here, or get home to my other bikes. i would totally sell it, but nobody in japan seems interested in it at all. everyone's kinda like "nice color, i guess"

    With all the throwing around of that first one, I had to look at my sticker to make sure I wasn't crazy thinking it was something else.
