Dear All, Just wondering if any tubing specialists on the list can answer some questions about Vitus 172 tubing. Here they are:
Was the Vitus 172 series a good tube set? Was it available in double-butted and plain gauge? Is it seamless?
I have a mid/low end Mercier "Service des Courses" frame that has a sticker stating that it is made from 172 SERIE LEGERE. Unlike other Vitus 172 stickers that I have seen, it does not specifically state that it is double butted tubing.
As always, your help will be very much appreciated.
Kind regards, Peter Rogers
