I'm searching for a new frame. Currently riding a 1994 LS Catalyst. Decent ride, but I want a larger more relaxed bike. It's very important that I get no chain rub during climbing. I prefer to climb hills off the saddle, and a very flexible frame won't do. I'm considering a Colnago master light. Anyone have any experience with this frame, or can give me a suggestion for another choice. Thanks much.
Atlantis or Rambouillet?cory

I'm a few pounds heavier than you, and I can't MAKE the chain rub on my Atlantis unless I deliberately fiddle the front derailleur. It's certainly more relaxed (but still lively-feeling), and it comes up to 68cm (mine's a 64). The Rambouillet is a lighter, "roadier" version of the all-purpose Atlantis.

I just upgraded form c C'dale CAAD4 R600 to a TI Merlin Cyrene. Had I known it would make that much difference, I would have started out with a TI bike. Sweet ride, very responsive and fast.
