Thanks to your help with my previous 'Long legs, short torso thread' (http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=122818
) I have narrowed my top three down to (in random order):
- Bianchi Infinito CV http://www.bianchi.com/global/bikes/bikes_detail.aspx?ProductIDMaster=124604
- Colnago CX zero http://colnago.com/cx-zero-2/?lang=en
- Kuota K-Uno http://www.kuota.it/bike.php?IDCategoria=1&IDBicicletta=47&IDColore=1
This is under the assumption that Kuota mixed up the stack & reach numbers on their website.
All bikes fall in the category 'endurance racers'. I will only be buying a frame set and will install my current Campagnolo Chorus 11 speed group set.
Reviews for the Colnago CV zero and Kuota K-Uno are hardly available, although I could find one for the Kuota in German; see http://www.tour-magazin.de/technik/test_center/raeder/rennraeder/kuota-k-uno/a26355.html
It got pretty good credits.
Reviews for the Bianchi Infinito CV can be found pretty easy. It was awarded bike of the year by Road cc. See for instance:http://road.cc/content/review/97052-bianchi-infinito-cvhttp://road.cc/content/news/105677-roadcc-bike-year-2013-14http://www.velonation.com/Gear/Review/View/ID/4203/2013-Bianchi-Infinito-Athena-EPS-Review.aspx
Surprisingly a Dutch magazine tested this bike and only gave it a 6 for stiffness/measurements results.
I consider my self as 'racer' (I used to ride crits 15 years ago) who likes to ride fast, on occasion rides on tracks, loves to climb - for instance in the Belgian Ardennes - and wants finish on top first. I do rides between 30 (50km) and 130 miles (210km). My current bike is a Ridley Noah (3 years old).
Which bike would you choose out of these three if you wanted a racy bike that corners well and handles nimble?
If anyone can post links to reviews of the Colnago and Kuota, then that would be helpful too.
