Geez, sorry I don't have the dimensions of the chainstays for my 96 Cramerotti but I can reassure you that my 230 lbs couldn't flex that frame out of the saddle. And just to be a real arse about it, I could climb with the best, a legend in my own mind .

When I purchased new from Bicicletta, I was told it had oversized stays. I see from the above chart that the MAX chainstays were straight gauge .06 mm while the EL-OS were butted 0.6 -0.8 mm without giving OD measurements. Nuff said. It wasn't dissimilar to my CAD3 C-dale frame. Jarring.
