|Opinions/recommendations wanted on what frame people on this forum would recommend for criteriums. I would expect such a frame would be stiff, particularly in the bottombracket and rear triangle, quick handling, and have a high bottombacket. Material choice is open, as is nation of origin. Additionally, I would also think weight would also be down on the list of concerns as climbing isn't a factor in such races.
For purposes of this discussion, let's keep the price below $1000 as above that point one can have a custom frame made.

|Cannondales are very stiff, light and should be well suited to crits.|

|Fairly stiff, light, and not overly rough like the Dales.
As long as you aren't a Mario clone the TCR should work just fine.
Oh, did I mention it's very inexpensive. Spend the saved bucks on some light wheels and race tires.
