Hi Thanks for the link to yellowjersey Ross. In fact, that and one other 5000 that is displayed in a Seattle shop is all the sources that I've found thus far. I'll have to drop Andrew Muzi an email. I've heard too that the tubi ng is very thin but mine isn't; I've seen and felt some very thin-tubed bik es in the past but my 5k isn't at all that way - it feels very solid, and i t rides as such. I took it out on the velodrome once and it was super resp onsive like good steel frames are. I haven't stripped it down to weigh the
   frame/fork/headset but I'd imagine that it's close to the 4.5lbs in the br ochure on yellowjersey.com. I won't be getting tired of her, just tired on
   her. Kenneth Stagg had some good history to relay about Sekai and the Tamura bro thers in the bikelist archives under "Sekai" - http://search.bikelist.org/ SearchString=sekai&pg=1. Todd
