Hi -
Any EV4 owners out there? I just received one of these framesets and am a little concerned about durability. It is a 61. I weigh 175 lbs, do not race.

Should I be concerned about this thing breaking? It is so damn light!!!

Thanks.

The high end lightweight Bianchis aren't known for their long-term durability.

How you doin? I would be concerned about durability. These frames are made for one season of racing, and that is all. The EV2s had a horrible history of stress fractures, although they are a beautiful bike with a great ride. The tubes on the EV4 are even thinner. I would get an everyday bike if I were you, and ride the Bianchi on special events. I cracked four EV2 frames.
