    Heavy Mettle

    We've got some heavy mettle tubes that I've not go the specs for and I can't find them anywhere, has anyone got details they could give me before I head to the workshop to be able to measure them

    All I can remember is they were made by reynolds using 631 material and the downtube is 37mm.

    It's the downtube I'm most interested in but anything will help

    Thanks

    If you have the tube in hand...

    ...you can just measure the butts and wall thickness, no? That's what I do with every tube before I use it anyway.
