Hello Jan , I can't tell you the wall thickness of a Gillott's Tapered tube without resorting to a Hacksaw. That would ruin my summer! I do recall Harry Carrington telling me that they experimented with an ovalised Taper tube - running across the bracket - for extra stiffness. A frame was built. He wanted to patent this idea but it would have been very costly. Are you including oversize toptubes? Gillotts built their lugless L'Atlantique with 1 1/8th'' TT.
