The rings are more to prevent the HT ends from expanding when a headset is pressed in. On a lugged frame it's the lug that provides that extra strength. On a luggless frame something else (the reinforcing band or a machined butt) do the job. On filleted frames I like to avoid having sharp edges, corners, shorelines for aesthetic reasons. This frame violates this goal in a few areas but otherwise follows that theme. More photos after completion. Andy
