The closest you will get will be 101.6, but id be going with 12.5 wall at least id even recommend going for the 16.5mm wall. When you see them you'll agree

your best bet would be solid bar, for all the weight your saving..... or if you are really weight critical turn the 101.6 16.5mm wall down to 100m o.d

Just my thoughts, hope it helps

what tube are you quoting with 101 x 16.5 Aiden ... can't see it in any of me books ??

It is out there as engineering tubes, but it's finding it ....
I do tend to agree with your min. on a 12mm wall though, other than the fact that Gra isn't really working this hard at all

Thick wall tubes have always been a total PITA to source
If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
