    Yeah, with the news from TT, makes me reconsider some of the big R. The last full reynolds bike I built in 2000 has been beat to hell and back and still rides pretty dang nice.

    Yup

    TT putting all their distribution in the hands of HJ is probably a bad thing, I agree. Hank and Monica (and their son, right?) are great but they have zero idea what builders want/need anymore and they really need to build a modern website, have real-time inventory shown online, etc.

    Maybe this will help HJ step up their game. One can only hope. But if it doesn't, and prices skyrocket for those of us who buy box quantities... I'll be looking at Reynolds too.

    Makes me think it is TT's safe way of getting out of the bicycle tubing business.

    Don't forget Bringheli for Columbus/Dedacciai. Although if you think HJ's website and ordering system are archaic...

But if I were this Nathan Hill, I'd at least have them put some time into their website and have some mechanism for online ordering if I were going to make them exclusive.

    Thanks for posting the announcement, Walt.

    I haven't ordered tubing yet, but will probably buy from HJ when the time comes, for better or worse.

    Well, two months ago, I asked about the 31.6 seat tube to Fairing. Got an answer that they could order a few for me. I told them I would order 20 units and then no answers from them...

    I'm looking to talk to them at NAHBS.

    I've had a new Reynolds pricelist through with the above on (no mention of curved seat tubes though?) and I can't wait to get some of the 31.6 seat tubes. Got a frame coming up that will need one so it's saved me some time machining something to suit

    Where did you get the new price sheet? And what are the specs on that tube?

    I don't think these (or the bent seattubes) are stock items, at least not in the UK.

    For Europe the min. order is 250 euros. That's not really what I would call "wholesale", especially when you order expensive tubes like 853... ;-)

    I manage to get away with some very small orders (single tubes on occasion) from Reynolds but I don't know whether this is normal

    Where do you order from, if you don't mind me asking? You are in the UK aren't you?

    Try this one:
    Reynolds Technology
    I really have a good experience with them: Keith or Paul always answer within 24hrs to emails, you can pay by Paypal, the shipment is fast, the tubes are nice, and they are constantly releasing tubes which solve our problems (good 29er down tubes, 30.9mm seat-tubes, etc...)

    Every day. It sucks. Flexhone to remove the rough edges. Adjustable (cheap) reamer slightly undersize to get as much material out of the way for the precision ground 27.2 reamer to do the job. Finish with another blast through of the flexhone to clean up. All done with a load of cutting fluid. Horrible job.
