|Does anyone have an opinion on the quality of Cramerotti frames: good, bad, or indifferent?

|They got a nice website. Those Italians are something else. Get one and review it for us.|

|They look ok and the prices are definitely right. Those two things mean very very very little to me. I'm skeptical about bikes that have no reputation to me and that I have not been aware of previously and cannot put my hands on. If I were to go that direction I'd make absolutely, positively sure of what exactly the refund and return and warranty policies and procedures are.|

|I bought the Cramerotti maverick last spring and have put quite a lot of miles on it. This frame uses the V107 tubing frame Deda. Incidently this is the same tubing used on the DeRosa Merak. The welds are very clean, bike is light & handles very well. I built up with Campy Record and upgraded fork to a Carbon/Carbon Steer Deda Blackmagic. I've never even seen this in USA. Total cost of bike was around 1000 cheaper than similar DeRosa at LBS.
You will get one of the best values for the money. I needed a standard 57cm frame which was in stock so the purchase was a breeze. If you do a custom order I'd expect a buffer on promised delivery time only because they are welded and painted in Italy.
I would definately repurchase from Cramerotti for any future road bike. I used to live in Vancouver where the company was based so had some familiarity with the bike from couple years ago...but on any new bike from a small company you look for references and ultimately take a leap of faith. I did, and definately love the result.
Hope this helps.
