    Should i get an iro angus ?

    Hey so i have a chromed bianchi pista 61cm but i dont like how everyone pays attention to the bike while Im riding

    So my friend says i should get an IRO (angus) 59cm, he says its a strong frame

    Im 6'1 / 6'2 ..is 59cm the right size for me ?

    And is the IRO a good frame ?

    Im thinking of selling my bianchi frame and switching the parts to the IRO

    This is definitely a decision which the internet should make for you.

    I have the Mark V which is pretty much the same frame but with a threadless headset. I race mine on the track and use it for 1-2 hour winter road rides. I like the bike but don't know if you will.

    The geometry is more relaxed than the Pista meaning its less twitchy/more stable/slower handling.

    Are you racing this bike or primarily riding it on the street?

    Another difference is that it uses a different type of tubing - the Angus' being a little nicer.

    Are you sure it's not just in your head? The pista is a great entry level track bike, nicer than a angus but it's not exactly flashy. I say keep it who cares what you think people are thinking.
