Well "contraflecture" who won the auction for the GIOS S/S frame might = just have something a little different soon between his thighs. As Steve Willis pointed out Columbus did produce a tubing, not too long = ago.. not actually stainless steel.. not actually a CRO-Mo.. but quite "


Maybe I missed something here, but it seems to me, from reading the auction, that this gios is not stainless at all, but simply the usual Columbus SL or SLX... and the seller doesn't understand that...he assumes special tubing must be stainless... that's a mistake a lot of uninformed people would make.

Now, maybe someone confirmed what this was and I missed it.. otherwise, I suspect frame was just garden-variety columbus cromo.
