just before you swallow the bait get the kick out of it

I was in the store the other day and checked both frames. 600$ Brava with 520 Reynolds noodly tubing was a lot stiffer in BB then 1900$ 853pro Zurich all thanks to teardrop shaped downtube.

So what instrument did you use to check the stiffness of the two bottom brackets? How do you know that it's the downtube that accounts for the difference you said existed?

Perhaps if you rode them OUTSIDE of the store your results would vary.
