I am looking to up grade my frame this autumn and my LBS sells the above to frames but cant seem to find any reviews on them, so was just wondering if anyone had any personal experience of them. I am looking at racing and hill climbing on the frame next year.
Thanks Dan

I guess you know you can download the 2014 product catalogue from the Dedacciai Strada website. Give me an ISP frame in preference to an old fashioned one any day.

I have downloaded the info but i want peoples reviews who have used the frames. The Super Scuro rc is 990grams abd i wondered if that was to heavy to hill climb as the Ran is in the low 800s.

On the thinking that a hill road is anything over 500m and a mountain pass anything over 1000m, well then that weight saving might be worth considering. But if you don't actually ride hills, then that weight saving is neither here nor there, especially if you throw in the weight of a seatpost column and a seat collar.
