3V tubes Is this the full gamut as far as 'we' can tell? Does anyone know how they could be differentiated? I ask because I am still trying to date my frame. thanks Jon Crate Marietta GA USA

This is from the Used Bike Guide: Missing the 84-85 3V, but
someone on the list said that Excel was still providing tubing at
that time. I thought the super thin Excel tubing was only for
small frames, but the other guy seems to imply his frame is large.
>From what I can gather, Masi used a lot of different tubing sources for their frames, including the 3V. Lou, off-list
