did a couple of searches and found some limited info on the Torelli cyclocross. there is one review on file. is anyone familiar with the Torelli cyclocross? specs? have a chance to purchase one, 58cm, $400 complete. was pretty set on a surly crosscheck, but this Torelli seems like a good deal.

For $400 it's tough to go wrong.

nice frmaes, Italian Built Colubus Zonal tubing. You can get a new one w/ a Wound Up Carbon fork and King Headset for 600 from Schwab Cycles.

Although the new Torelli 'crossers are aluminum, I have a 3 year old steel Torelli now set up as a singlespeed. Stable, comfortable and versatile. Have used it for commuting, group road rides, single track, even a couple of laps at the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo "mountain bike" race. I spend most of my time on this bike and love it.

I have run as large as 38 knobbies front and rear without problems. I measured the seat tube at 54 cm C-C and the top tube at 54 cm C-C. I don't know the ST and HT angles, but it handles a wide variety of conditions well.

If the frame fits and is in good shape, that deal sounds like a winner.

I checked it out. It is aluminum, '98 frame. Looks nice and all but I want a steel bike. 58 cm was a little big too, according to "the boys". 56-57cm depending on manufacturer is probably going to get it done. Road a Lemond Poprad, 55cm, a little too small but nice ride. Last years with the steel fork. Anyone out there want to get rid of their steel ride? Drop me a line. thanks, E
