ya, that is the stock 1-5/8 OD, .155 wall Easton head tube. That would mean your frame was made from "varalite" tube set. They produced two different specs for each tube. Do you know what your frame weighs? 7005 suffers from "fatigue corrosion" and while the modules of elasticity is better than 6061, the fatigue life is pretty short.
