What is your Faverite Material of frame

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

A well fitting frame with a sound geometry and one which is built to a high standard will ride well whatever the material.
Steel is good and Columbus are one of the best manufacturers of tubing. Colagno know a thing or two about building frames, so the only question is does it fit ?
Take the bike for a ride, and feel if the reach to the handle bars feels OK. You should have at least 1" of clearance when you stand over the frame.
