    Thanks All for the helpful comments..
    It is indeed difficult to buy something big without test riding..

    Agreed. Completely. I took a HUGE leap of faith, and it worked out for me. YMMV.

    I've got the 58 and I weigh 165. It's plenty stiff for me, and I would put it on par with a stiff steel bike. The downtube is definitely...oversized. I love mine -- it's one of the best value in road bikes.

    Can some one confirm that the geo is not racy ? I am looking for more of a upright position as I don't race. Also, can I put in some spacers if needed to get a more relaxed geo ?

    Thanks
