Subject: [CR]Mixed Tubing Bikes ?

Ahoy ! I am generally aware that bicycles were constructed of mixed tubing to acheive particular ride characteristics. And, some of these "mixed" bicycles offer excellent rides.

May I ask those who know the tubing mix of their bikes if they would offer comment - what tubes, year, make, model of bike, how the bike rides, etc..?

Please keep in mind that your comments can add much value to the archive of this discussion.

On my part, my favourite ride is /was the recently whacked early 1980's Basso Tre-tubi. Although, I don't know anything about the tubing mix. The all purpose disclamer of "proprietary tubing".
