Butted frame tubes in chrome molybdenum steel

Butted tubes

Pilen Supersport and Sport has a frame with butted tubes of chrome molybdenum steel SAE 4130 in the top pipe and down tube – thicker materials (1.2 mm) near the frame angles and welds and thinner materials (0.9 mm) in the middle of the tubes. It provides an improved relationship between weight and performance. Butted steel tubes was used in the classic racing bicycles era when the steel frames were dominant. No other manufacturer of classic utility and sport bikes in Sweden, Scandinavia or Europe uses butted frame tubes in chrome molybdenum steel.
