I think that the lugged frame has it's niche... The young crowd, seeking alternatives to what they see as a glitzy, yuppy, elitest cycling scene, have embraced steel both lugged, filet brazed and tigged. This is still a relatively small group but certainly more than the babby boomer folks (us) who have appreciated this style bike all along. There is no question that vintagesque bikes and bike components are having a modest revival.
I did not notice a 953 tubed frame but there very well may have been one.

Hi Dale or other Interbike attendees,
Do tell us more about the lugged bikes - is there a revival of steel-lugged frames? Are we going to see more KOF bikes in the style which fits within the CR (KOF) parameters - especially with the introduction of Reynolds 953? Were there any frames built with 953 at Interbike?
Enquiring minds would like to know!! ;^)
