To All:

To me the most arresting portion of the tubing comparison chart (links posted earlier by David White) is the rider weight limit data.

All the Columbus and Reynolds tube sets (save SP) are represented as being intended for riders who weigh no more than 175 lb.

There are actually people who consider me to be slender and yet it appears it would not take very many McCalories(TM) to achieve a level of heft at which classic lightweight cycling would be contraindicated.
