Anyone ever ride a Gunnar, Voodoo, Steelman, Cervelo?JD

I am looking into the following steel frames. I ride a CAAD4 and want the ride of my old steel bike back. I am looking at the Gunnar Tire biter (853), A Voodoo Road Frame (853 with 731 stays), Steelman 525 (525 tubing), or a Cervelo Prodigy (Columbus Thermacron). This wil be my primary race ride, so durability is a factor as well as the premium:PERFORMANCE. I can get all of these for close to the same price. Any thoughts on these? I am 5'7 and 155 lbs if it helps. Thanks - Jay

I've only ridden the Steelman road frames (I've ridden VooDoo mtbs) but am pretty familiar with the Gunnars (I know nothing about Cervelo). I'd say of the three, the workmanship will be the best on the Steelman, but 525 is slightly heavier tubing (but probably more durable, too). I'm not sure wht you mean by "performance," but if the Steelman fit, that would be my pick. Also, if you have any questions about his frames, I'm sure Brent Steelman would be very happy to answer them.
