Cinelli Nemo TIG has massive tubes, so does Stelbel SB/03. They don't ride any different than a modern aluminum frame + ride quality is phenomenal!3Pio wrote: ↑Sun Feb 03, 2019 7:22 amMy Caad12 is 6830 gm in lightest version (Bora 35 Tub/CorsaG+ tires/kalloy uno 110mm stem), but consider 6950 gm, since this is with Look Keo Ti pedals, and i ride Favero Assioma Power Meters which add 100 gm. 20-30 gm extra, for different stem, since im still experimenting with this..Sock3t wrote: ↑Sun Feb 03, 2019 5:20 amI race Cat 5 on it. The saddle is a little flexible but not much. It's 7.2kg as it sits right now with DA 9000 on it.ToughInTheStreets wrote: ↑Sat Feb 02, 2019 11:25 pm@3Pio, thank you very much for the feedback after your long ride today. Its crazy to ever be comparing a C60 to an aluminum anything, isn't it? It's also odd to realize that it is lighter than your carbon framed top of the line Colnago. As far as how much I ride, I am gone quite a bit and unable to ride sometimes, but squeaked in over 8k KM last year, which I feel is decent enough and getting my money's worth out of my bikes. In comparison, I drove less than 2k km last year haha. I really appreciate your input and truly didn't expect to hear this.
@Sock3t, damn. That's a sharp looking ride you put together . Always liked those Controltech carbon saddles as well. Do they flex enough to take out any harshness? Plan would be to toss on some 50 mm carbon wheels as well. Do you do any racing on it? Thanks for sharing
It's a really fun bike to ride!

I also considered Steel frameset, but give up after realizing that will be flexy and heavy (Considered Ritchey Road Logic and Colnago Master X-Light).. So to be metal + stiff+light+not uber expensive = Alloy
BTW, i have another alloy frameset/carbon fork for my commuting.. It's Bianchi Pista SeiGiorni (here i have alloy Cinelli Lola Handlebar), and realized on this frame that it's not harsh, and also very fun for my city riding (it can be fast and very nice acceleration)
Even i prefer clasic look framesets, That Allez look very good..
edit: by you, I mean ToughInTheStreets
When i was purchasing my CAAD12, i considered Cinelli Nemo Tig as well.. But few things put me off..
1. Price (3 or 4 times more expensive then CAAD12)
2. Weight (about 800 gm heavier then CAAD12 frame, which is not that minor difference...)
3. Geometry (51 have a low stack for me, 54 on high side as i wanted to try a bit smaller size then what i have now)
