Just curious - why are you so set on the Reynolds brand? Tru Temper, Columbus, Dedacciai (sp?) and others all make fine steel tubing as well.
Oh, probably sentimental reasons. But, mostly, likely, paranoia. I usually don't confess weaknesses over the internet, but, I am a tad paranoid that I'll end up with a non-steel bike. I was thinking that if I see Reynolds, I know I'm getting steel. I love steel. "I'd rather ride steel than wear gold or platinum." (I have a bike with Columbus. I know Tru Temper is steel.) Maybe I should have said the word "steel" instead of Reynolds. But, Reynolds is simply kinda "dreamy", in that steel-sort-of-way.
And, what if, there was such a bike, with Shimano XTR derailler and Avid brakes, etc., all put on a lugged frame with reynolds tubing, for under $1000 USA, and I didn't know it and bought something else?
