Hi all, I have recently purchased a 60cm c-c Peugeot frameset made with Reynolds 531 Professional tubing. I understand this tubing is even more lightweight than 531c tubing. Do you framebuilders out there see any strength issues using this lightweight tubing on a fairly large frame like this? I am also pretty big at 210 pounds........Do I need to lose some weight?

thanks,
