Hello Everyone -

Dimensions of the main tubes for 531P and 531C are in the 1984 Trek Brochure, (Racing) page 2, http://www.vintage-trek.com/TrekBrochure1984Racing.htm

A week ago I complained to fellow Trek owner, Chris Clement, that I couldn't find much info on the web about 531 vs 531C vs 531P. He politely referred me to the above page (AND kindly refrained from calling me disparaging names :-)

cheers,
