|I have just had a custom road bike built from Columbus Nivacrom. It's a beauty, but I'd love to know more about the tubeset, anyone seen a review of this stuff, or ridden it? Only had the thing a day, but it rides pretty sweetly.|

|I have a Nivacrom Santana Tandem.
Tubes are real thin, but it's fillet brazed so the brass joints actually make it heavier than the tig welded cro-moly bikes.
My wife and I like it, and it's pretty enough that we get favorable comments every time we ride.

|....there are several tubesets built from it including,El, EL-OS,Max, Genius,Nemo,and the proprietary tubeset used in the Master Light.Each tubeset has different characteristics, including wall thickness,shaping, and butting,among others.In strength,it falls below thermachrom(foco) and above Cyclex(Neuron and Brian).|

|I bought a bike (DeBernardi) built with Columbus Zona tubeset. I love it! In my research I found some technology info on the Columbus website. If you are into the technical side... follow the link:
