Of course it could be that I was an idiot and used the wrong search screen :mrgreen:

There you have it: Richard claims the tubes are a non-factor considering ride quality. Richard Sachs is an authority. He could be wrong, but he seems to know his trade very well.

I have an Columbus XCR Peg and barely notice any loss in stiffness compared to my carbon Cervelo, but it is massively oversized in terms of steel frames. Personally I’d give Zullo your stats and let them pick the tubing, they’ve got a lot of experience in this framebuilding lark!

Yeah, it's going to be great no matter what they will serve up. Then it needs to be decked out with some nice components (not over the top). Not that I need more than a beater with Veloce, my wattage is pathetic :mrgreen:

It's funny, when I was younger I had the legs now I have the money. Didn't Alanis had a song about that situation? :mrgreen:

Sherlock Holmes I'm not! If you can get a Zullo, and tubsie here loves his EOM 16.5 done by an artisan, there surely can be no other choice!!
