I find it kind of funny that I was so obsessed with getting 531 framed bikes, I had gazillions of pix of my 531 tags... and I can find so few now...

The pic looked fine on "Preview Post" but when I posted it, it came out as image tag soup. So I tried to delete the thread- it didn't finish- I didn't get a chance to get back on BF... when I got home I saw that it didn't delete.

Kind of cool when your favorite frame material has its own day.

I’m fond of Columbus day too, but there’s a lot of fine Italian baggage attached to that holiday.

Four cheers for the great Reynolds 531!









I thought about driving to work this morning, but when I remembered that it was 5/31 I decided to ride in on the Trek (first picture above).

Unless we take drastic measures, calendar-wise, there'll never be a 531 day here in Europe ...

Well, 4 of my bikes ( I think) get to celebrate the holiday. My Raleigh Competition no longer wears the stickers but it was fully stickered and certified. The fix gear of my logo, while ti, has a 531 fork. I believe the fork to my older ti bike is also 531. Likewise, I believe my Mooney was built full 531 but in those days, Peter would only sticker it if you paid extra as he wanted the freedom to choose what he believed the best tubing for the application.

So while my fleet is nearly 50% 531, I have no stickers to show for it.
