sorry about posting it in here, but I believe i don't need a new topic, and the question is about a steel frame. But if the moderators think it should be a topic, feel free to move.

I got a cr-mo Colossi frame, brand new. Cheap, but damn nice. Straight and really well buit. Made with Columbus Zona, 54 top tube (wich by the way, is a bit small to me - I should use a 55,5 TT). Built with DA7800, wheels are DA hubs with a Mach1 rim (32 holes), Velo orange alu seatpost (with huge setback) and a Velo seat with titanium rails. 700X23 clinchers, butyl tubes and maxxis tires.

Anyway, the bike rides damn nice almost all the time, but it just jumps A LOT in the rear. If I run over some bad tarmac (wich we have lots here in Brazil) the thing acts like a freaking Kanguru. It's annoying me too damn much :cry:

any ideas on what cause this, and what I can try to do to fix it? The Zona tubing was suposed to be strong. By the way, since the frame is a bit small, I got a lot of seatpost showing. I run with 120 psi on the clinchers, as I weight 81kg. With my AL and carbon bikes, never felt this weird problem...

Thanks in advance and again, if I should make a topic for it, just tell me.

I'm in love but I can't make a choice...
Do you have enough love for the three of them?

If i had a fleet like that my ridding would be halved because i would have trouble deciding wich bike to take for a spin !

Do anny of the bikes have a paticulair purpose, i mean did you perhaps build one withc limbing in mind or more comfort ?
There gorgeus, all of them !

@salok.....that is the most impressive collection of bike porn I've seen in a while! Gorgeous bikes. Would it be too much trouble to get a build list for each? Maybe they need their own intro thread?
