|I know a racing team that used them last year. This year they switched to Specialized because of a sponsorship agreement. The guys I asked said they liked the Quattros and were very happy with them.|
|Do you know which frame? Thanks||Pecos|

|I ride the compact frame. I believe it is called the attack. Anyway, I love it. It is very stiff, and very fast. It is crit style geometry, i.e. short wheelbase. I now ride in Louisiana, and the roads are alot worse than they were in Indiana. You definitely feel the road, but its not bad. Plus, the bike is well suited for climbing, I think. Bill Lewis is a great guy to deal with. He helped me out when I wrecked my Quattro earlier this year. BTW, I hit a guy at 30mph, and endoed. No frame damage at all. Just a tweaked derailleur hanger. This past weekend, I saw some really sweet Quattro's at the Tour de Louisiane. They put a carbon rear stay on the attack frame. It looks oh so sweet, and I'm sure it helps with the road vibration. Let me know if you've got any more questions.|

|A friend built a bike up for me - I gave him the cash, and told him to do the best he could - and he came up with a Quattro Assi frame off of ebay last summer. I have only been riding for about 2.5 months, but I really like it - seems light in comparison to everything I pick up, barring CF.
I too am interested in where others think QA frames fall in the pecking order - I just don't know. I'm happy with the bike, but I'd like to know where it stands.
