The good ol' days

Way back when there was this frame tubing made by Tange called Prestige. I'm sure a lot of you remember it. As good as a customers thought the stuff was, it was revered by frame builders even more. Always straight, to spec, and rarely a flaw. Last week I was in need of a slightly heavier top and seat tube for a customer and Jeremy at Sycip was kind enough to let me scrounge through his inventory and make away with a couple of these gems. I could have, and would have, used whatever tubes he had that were of the correct specs I needed, they just happened to be Prestige. That said, it was a nice treat on Friday to weld them up into a frame. Someone told me they're going to make the stuff again, but I hear that every year. I won't hold my breath.....

When you get tubing from the Sycip, he generally stashes some Filipino sausage in there somewhere.
