Gear Talk / 531 st vs 853
« on: August 01, 2006, 06:00:25 pm »
I have an old Trek touring bike, all Reynolds 531st, a local shop has a consignment frame, an IF Independence all Reynolds 853 tubing at a very good price. The frame meassures out the same as my Trek but the owner is lighter than me. Is there any real advantage to the IF other than pure "bike lust" and the thrill of tricking out a new bike(I'm thinking fast light tourer as in how far and fast can I go with a handlebar bag and a Carridice.)
