    Columbus Genius tubing

    Is there a rider weight limit for the Columbus Genius tubeset? I am considering a frame with Genius tubes that are silver fillet brazed. My current weight is 205, but I will get down to 175 (or less). Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    I don't know if there is a weight limit but I think you are silly to go with such a thin tubeset at your weight. The bike will be wippy unless you are just a cruiser. Zona would be a much better choice.
    Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(

    Well, I have been wondering about that as well. The shop also has a TSX frame, and I am giving that strong consideration as well. Thanks for the feedback!
