.6mm seat stays 58cm frame

Seeking opinions or experienced observations of using .6mm x 16mm(True Temper) seat stays on a 58cm frame. It will be set up for general club riding and some go faster sessions on the road. Rest of frame is 7-4-7 tubes from Columbus. I have the seat stays so I can save a few bucks by using them.

Wondering if the thin tubes will affect handling or hard drives on the pedals.

Comparing on a relative basis those stays will be stiffer than your main triangle. A STD size frame made from .7/.4/.4mm tubing will be quite flexible but the 16mm stays are more analogous to those used on an OS tube frame. One possible hesitation would be if you are going to use cantilever brakes.

No canti's, standard side pull brakes. Thank you for the input.
