Good question. I think in the sense that a larger diameter tubeset would be better suited to a larger (and stronger) rider, then Iíve got to think that thatís where the thought that Techno is best for larger riders and Neuron for lighter (and less strong) riders. But thereís no weight limit on the tubeset that I can find. Never heard of one. And heck, think of all those riders (Big and small, strong and not as strong) through the Ď60s, Ď70s, Ď80s, Ď90s who rode on standard diameter tubing and they did just fine.

Iím currently 170 lbs and was about 190-195 lbs. four years ago. Never had any stiffness or other issues with the frame. Itís plenty stiff, one of the stiffer steel frames Iíve had. 195 lb. rider should do just fine on this.

Itís a mix of Campy parts, not one model groupset. But it works really well together.
Crankset: Centaur Ultra-Torque 53-39
