If the mystery Raleigh 555 SL tubing is really 555 Tange Prestige tubing just dressed up with a Reynolds-look-a-like tubing sticker, then I fail to see how this would be a money saving move. Wouldn't it be cheaper for Raleigh to use Reynolds 531 tubing, then to buy Tange tube sets from Japan? Even though Reynolds is a more expensive tube set, it must be cheaper to use your own then to buy from someone else. Garth Libre in Surfside Fl.
