    not being a metallurgist, ive no idea how this compares to Columbus XCR or Reynolds 953...anyone know the answer?

    interesting to see you can purchase direct from them...eg a complete tubeset for $389! (£250?...) http://www.kvastainless.com/shop/product­_info.php/cPath/22/products_id/33

    ....if only i could braze...(makes some of the custom frame prices charged seem a little steep if you can purchase high end tubing so cheaply, no?...)

    oh and theres a UK supplier....frame plus SRAM Force build + 15llbs!

  • That price doesnt include high cost parts like BB shell or drop outs though.

  • Man, good news. Ive been lusting after that stuff for some time. Good to know that its freely available now. Costs about half of what XCR costs. It`s nowere near as fancy as 953 and should lead to heavier bikes since it has bigger wallthicknesses but i would love to build a frame with it.

  • Interesting stuff; if anyone orders some can I get in on that please?
    Just want one PG bit to practise with.

  • i am really interested in things like this too, if anyone wants to do a bulk purchase or has done already then let us know here in the Forum.
