    Viner Bicycles

    As a replacement for a defective frame, I have the opportunity to pick up a Viner compact frame. There is very little written about them (as far as reviews). Does anyone have any experience or even second hand knowledge of: a) lightness b) stiffness c) durability?

    I do not have any experience w/ the new Viner frames but I can say they are an awesome company!. My dad still rides his 1983 steel Viner. I can say it that stood the test of time and that you would probably be the only one on your block w/ that frame.

    "Race Bike of the Year"

    For an interesting race bike review, purchase "Cycling Weekly" for August 30th, 2003.

    They compared 8 race bike of different makes and models, and the reviews were quite interesting.

    Here are the results:
    1st - Colnago C40 HP
    2nd - Litespeed Capella
    3rd - Viner Pro Team
    4th - Hinde Airplane
    5th - Pinarello Prince XL
    6th - Specialized Allez Comp
    7th - Giant TCR ONCE Team
    8th - Bianchi XL AL EV3

    Viner finished third!
