Subject: was RE:[CR]Raleigh 753 now seat tube size question


Since Mike Mullett positively Id'd John's bike as an Ilkeston 753 team pro I have a question. Assuming that the measurement of the seat tube is correct ( 27.2 vs the metric 27) one would say the seat tube is 531. Why would someone want a 753 bike with a 531 seat tube? strength for a heavier rider? gear masher/sprinter type?

thanks
