Super Vitus 980

Why do so many people say that Super Vitus 980 is flexy? I have a PSV10 and cannot feel any flex when climbing or sprinting. It feels stiff enough to me.

+1---however, I am 175lbs and ride a 56cm. I wonder how a 59cm model would ride?

Unlike many columbus sl/slx -tubed frames for which builders opted to use columbus SP in their downtubes in their larger sizes (58cm and higher--in many cases), peugeot's sv 980 bikes were sv throughout regardless of frame size.
