Oh yeah, forgot to add that in terms of telling what the tubing is, you may be able to detect a seam if you look/feel inside the tubes, thus confirming that it is Tange Infinity/900. Or maybe not,...

There are some very nice white bikes in this thread! Here's my white Shogun 2000. I think it's officially 'Ivory' but the off-whiteness doesn't really come through in this picture.
