Not a builder but I'm the same height and weight, my '85 Gios Torino constructed with regular dia. Columbus SL was way too flexy. Sunday ride bike only, impossible to sprint and climb due to the ghost shifting to a higher gear when putting the power to the pedal. Very comfy compared to my Marinoni Special built with SP. Can't comment on frames built with OS, never rode one.
