My Atlanta gets the most saddle time. For me it is stiff enough, must be the big tapered tubes at the bottom bracket and has that intangible quality that makes a steel bike just feel right. I have an Ultegra 6700 group on it with Ultegra hubs/Open pro rims. It's not light but floats along just fine.

If you can ride it comfortably I say have fun and tear it up. The lugs are pretty nice too!!
Since you have experience with these frames, any thoughts on tire clearance?

If I ended up keeping it, I'd like to go wider to balance out riding 23s on my other main bike.
