I recently posted an inquiry about the Colnago MasterX Lite frame. I appreciate everyones imput. Now I'll throw out for comment the new Bianchi Al frame. Does anyone have any experience with this new frame? I hear that they tend to run small.

Doubt you get any comments. There is a small write up in the Tech section of cycling news. They mention that Coast will be getting an EV2 for training and an EV4 for racing. I took that comment to mean that it was a race only frame. Although, it may be because of ltd availability.

If posted weights are correct it is very light indeed. I have an EV2 and love the frame. You may also want to take a look at the Boron steel model. They do run small because although not a true compact frame they do have a slightly sloping top tube. Sorry I could not be of more help.

"If posted weights are correct it is very light indeed. I have an EV2 and love the frame. You may also want to take a look at the Boron steel model."

Have you ridden a Boron Steel frame? I am in the market for a good lightweight steel frame. I am leaning towards a Columbus Nemo steel frame from GVH. However, I would also consider a Bianchi if I could find one at the right price.
