    Oh, I think it looks interesting. Be interesting to actually ride it head to head against my 928...

    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.

    YMMV.

    Ride safely!
    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)

    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.

    Also:

    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.

    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.

    I'm no hater. My current bike is a Ridley Excalibur and I previously owned a Bianchi 928. Neither is as comfortable as my Gazelle Champion Mondial, though.
