Fit difference?(3 posts)

I need to know if there is a fit difference between the 2003 R5000 (Dura-Ace) and the 2003 Team Replica? (Campagnolo Record)

I currently ride the R5000 with a 52cm. Frame. I have the saddle set back almost as far as it will go. The R5000 has a Thompson set back seat post. (bent back) If I were to ride the Team Replica would I be able to get the saddle back far enough with the stock seat post? The Team Replica has a USA Alien Carbon post. (straight)

Do the frames have a different seat tube angles?

Also the Team Replica has a Fi'zi:k Aliante saddle on it. Is it true that this saddle has a weight restriction on it? I think I read that you should weigh under 180Lbs. to ride this saddle.

The over-size carbon fiber rails on Aliante do not fit the Alien CF post. Most likely the saddle on the Team Replica is the ti model (titanium rails, slightly heavier than the CF model) that supposedly doesn't have the weight limit.
As far as I know the frame geometries are identical - CAD7. (nm)jtferraro
