Bicycle Trivia: CrMo steel really is a super-alloy. 4130 CrMo steel has a tensile strength roughly 15% greater than 3Al/2.5V Titanium. Reynolds 853 is more than twice as strong as 3Al/2.5V and 25% stronger than 6Al/4V Ti. For more, view the tubing comparisons data .

|Overview||With our acclaimed “point and pedal” geometry,our frames are built by some of the best builders in the industry. As we’ve already said,this frame is the ‘Sirius for the single minded’ – the geared crowd who want a high performance,lively frame with no-compromises so Reynolds 853 features once again. The main design elements of the award-winning Sirius have been retained with one major exception – the dropouts. We’ve opted for a cowled design to give us a large weld area for the stays and also included a replaceable gear hanger,just in case. One other subtle change is slimmer seat stays. These two changes shave weight (without compromising strength) and give you the bike you’ve been looking for.|
