I would put the ride of a steel frame against that any day...
Hybrid: 1995 Giant Innova
Road: 2012 Surly Pacer
Reynolds 531 frame with 25 mm handmade tubulars.
Cyclists of the world, unite! You have nothing to lube but your chains!
I have a 1989 Bottecchia built wit Columbus SLX steel. I have a Bianchi Infinito but not the CV model.
The Bianchi is more comfortable, in long hauls, than the Bottecchia, especially on rough and broken up pavement.
I also have. a Colnago C59.
The C59 is far more comfortable, in all situations, than the Bott or the Infinito.
I have ridden all three bikes thousands of miles each and that is my seat of the pants, unscientific conclusions.
My current stable:
1989 SLX Bottecchia (Campy Athena 11s)
1999 Cannondale F400 mountain bike
2012 Bianchi Infinito (Campy Record 11s)
2012 Colnago C59 in PR99 color scheme (Campy Record 11s)
2016 Colnago C60 in MHWH color scheme (Campy Record 11s)
Haters gonna hate.
Just curious how many of you have ridden a late model CF bike? Also,anyone notice how many guys on steel bikes made it to the podium in the TdF this year? This isn't a touring bike,this is a race bike.

NASA put dudes on the moon. They're kinda like,well,rocket scientists. So if they've got something that works,I'd be willing to try it.
C'dale BBU('05 and '09)/Super Six/Hooligan8and 3,Kona Dew Deluxe,Novara Buzz/Safari,Surly Big Dummy,Marin Pt Reyes,Giant Defy 1,Schwinn DBX SuperSport,Dahon Speed Pro TT,Brompton S6L/S2E-X
Sponsors would have to put TdF riders on steel bikes for that to happen.
I'm a steel guy, myself. But, I'm always interested in new technology. I'd be interested in riding this new frame. Sounds intriguing.
