A matter of opinion, no doubt, but most Francophiles think the old French frames feel different, and the metric 531 was definitely different in diameter, so is an obvious, if only partial, explanation for the feel.

I've never heard that metric gauge tubing has a much different "feel" over other 531 tubing. Have I been missing something?
