    What grade of tubing did a Basso Astra use?

    This is a lower model than the Gap and Ascot yes?

    Anyone own(ed) one?

    The Astra used EL

    I'm not sure where it fit compared to the Ascot, but it was a model above the Gap. They were nice bikes, but a little flexie for bigger riders.

    Nice bike

    As mentioned, EL, not EL/OS but standard EL. Very light tube set. I have two Ascots and the Astra is quite a bit lighter. In production for about as long as the Ascot, a couple of years with production overlapping a bit. Both are above the Gap.


    BTW, haven't forgotten about Nagasawa but have been up to my eyeballs at work. Ha ha, financial services.......
