She loved it because it was so light. I hear these frames are intended to be like a climbing bike. I think it also has a weight recommendation of under 150 pounds. I don't know what your criteria is or what you're using the bike for. If you are looking for an all around bike and you're weigh around 150 you may want to spend a couple hundred more and look at the Carb Level or a few hundred less and look at the Top Level. I definitely think that you are looking at the right brand. I have heard nothing but positive things about the quality and ride of the Fondriests.

Thanks for you information. You are right the Don Racer is a climber's bike but I am not awear that the rider's weight limitation is so low. I thought it was 170 pounds. I will find that out. The Carb Level is neat but I think it's a bit over priced. Plus my current bike is a good all rounder also with carbon stays. I also like the Top Level but the shop don't have my size.
Talk to the shop and check the Fondriest sitePack Meat

I've spoken with the guy they list as the technical director, Keith. He is pretty nice and knowledgeable. I'm pretty sure he can answer the question, I could be mistaken about the weight limit.
