|I am looking for an alternate ride to my steel Colnago and I came across this frame at ZonaBici.com. I am looking for a light weight AL frame with a modest price and this seemed to fit the bill. Does anyone have any knowledge about these frames?
When I started riding road two years ago I bought a Giant TCR with Shimano 105. It is a great bike at a great price. However, after building the Colnago tailored to my fit, I realized that the Giant really doesn't fit me well. I should have bought the small frame and not the medium. It seems that if a frame is a little undersized, one can make it fit with the proper components, i.e. stem, bars and saddle for/aft adjustment. If a frame is too big, well, there is little that can be done. I hate to give up the TCR as it is well appointed, looks great, has a supple ride for AL, is well cared for, BUT, it doesn't fit! I will be placing it in the classifieds with a pic for anyone that is interested.

|My whole team rides Wiliers, the bike ROCKS! I just got the Alp d'Huez model a few weeks ago it is truely amazing. I have never heard a negative thing about the bikes from anybody on the team. They are stiff and compliant. It handles road vibration better than my steel bike. The bike goes around a corner like a ferrari. They are almost impossible to get here in the States. I have no reservations recommending this bike.
