I'm looking at picking up a Litespeed Ghisallo. It has come to my attention that the first generation of this frame was somewhat flexy and changes were made to add stiffness in future generations. Does anybody know when they started making the "second generation" Ghisalllo?

Aren't all Ghisallo generations flexy as hell? :lol:

If I am not mistaken, the second generation came out in 2006/2007. You can easily identify a second generation frame by the oversized down tube.

Ghisallo frames are certainly not super-stiff carbon frames, but they do provide an engaging comfortable ride.

You may hear a lot of hate out there for them, but you should try and make up your own mind.

I have high end alloy and several carbon frames and some days, the LS is just right.
