Subject: [CR] Early Reynolds fork tube options


  I recently came across some early option designations for the tubes for Reynolds fork blades. This was in the '30s when they first started. The options were listed as T.G. or  S.R. with no explanation. We believe the T.G. would have stood for tapered guage, since that seemed to be their philosophy, but pretty much at a loss for what the S.R. might have stood for....straight round was our best guess. Anybody remember...... or know? I've seen the S.R. on fork blade decals, but not T.G.
