Would love to hear any pro's or con's on Columbus Starship tubing. Also if anybody rides an Abici Starship frame would love to hear your feedback.

Thank you,
Ray Still

who use them and seem to like them. In fact spoke with the guy that makes them about getting one, cool looking bikes, dig that Schwinn blue paint. My only caveat is I believe Columbus puts a weight limit on that tubeset. I am tempted to go with Altec 2+, the weight gain is small and worth the piece of mind for me. They have a website I believe.

Been wondering the same myself. Heard rumors of flexynes and questionable frame durability. Thinness= light, but also rider weight limits...? Also why is the Cinelli Starlight $1700 but the Orbea Starship only $999??
