I don't think Mike said it was 753. I think he just said it was an Ilkston frame. I think the 27.2 indicates 531, so the tubing decal is probably incorrect.

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?
