I posted in the general forum, and it was suggested that I come here and post. I just got into cycling in February. Have lost about 50 lbs. and have another 50 to go to 200. I am having such a great time riding, I want to reward myself with a new bike. I have it narrowed down to the De Rosa Corum and the Colnago Master X Light. I am hopeful that someone might help me, as neither have been available for me to ride and I have to buy the frame without the benefit of having test road either. I want a hill climber, as my goal is to Ride the Rockies next summer. I also want a frame that not only looks pretty and is fast, but will come out of the box without defects and will provide years of worry free riding. Any help is appreciated!
