Does anyone here have an opinion on the GT ZR1 frame, the one that Lotto-Adecco uses? I've seen this frame being sold very cheap, and was wondering how it compares/ranks with other bikes the pros are currently riding. I don't really care about warranty issues and all that, I just want to know about the frame because I am considering building one up.

Thanks
If I was going to race I would get one.MB1

The sizes ran just a little big. I ride a 57 or 58 mostly but the 56cm GT's fit me fine. I think they are Easton tubing and a fairly racy/quick ride. Get a carbon fork for comfort.

My gripe is that their replacable rear der. hangers are made of cheese. I'm serious - they're very soft and super easy to bend. Not too difficult to put it into the spokes and tear the whole works off. This seems to apply across the whole range. Buyer beware.
