4 tenths of a mm! Yikes! Yes I was going to mention that.. Actually it is interesting to me that frequently in French and Italian ads for bikes the tubing gauges are specified in this way rather routinely. This gives the reader a clue as to how light and racy that particular bike is. That seems to be a rare-to-unknown practice in England and the USA. Dale Brown
