don't know about the CTI specifically... but was riding with a friend about 6 months ago who had just bought the Colnago steel frame. I think it's called the Master x or something to that effect. Anyway, during the previously mentioned ride, my friend makes a normal shift and the chain jumps off the cassette and shears through the chain stay near the drop out. I've seen chain drop countless times but never with the same consequence. I was on his back wheel when this happened so needless to say, it didn't come as a nice surprise to me either! My friend sent the frame back to the internet retailer he bought it from and they forwarded it to Colnago. After 6 months, it still hasn't been repaired and the retailer doesn't know when it will be returned. Based on my observation, I wouldn't pay top dollar for subpar quality bike and crappy service.
