Because SL was so flexy when used on larger frames (~58cm and bigger), many framebuilders used a mix of SL and SP on larger frames, typically with SP down tubes and seat tubes. Schwinn did this on the mid-to-late eighties Waterford built Paramounts before they went to True Temper OS tubing in 1989.
