Thanks Dale. Good info. That would put me on the next smaller frame than what I own for both the Ridley and Wilier. That really suggests I would be better off on the 56cm Evoluzione.

Or I opt for a size L Cinelli Saetta Race Cut frame (the other contender for the same price of $1500). That has an effective TT of 55, and is supposed to have a supple ride. The Masi looks cooler, has a tapered head tube and carbon dropouts... PF30 BB (stiffer on paper but possibly problematic with adapters).

Andy, they are custom TiCycles posts. Dave uses the excellent Thompson clamp and bolts and fabricates an aluminum lower piece to suit. Setback is whatever you want. Post is steel or ti. 2 bolt clamp that works really well. The Thompson is a long clamp that supports the seat rails well, making it a good post for ti rail seats. Not cheap. But compared to a post that caused a ti seat rail to break and another post that broke on day two of a week long ride I paid nearly a grand for, worth every penny. On mine, the aluminum is black anodized, which minimizes it's size. I get very few comments on it.

FFIW, I really like my Masi. Rides good, looks good, and I don't see one under every other person.

Reach 15 1/8"

Stack 21 1/2"


HUH? WTF kind of numbers are those? That must be the smallest bike in the world. Does it use 650C wheels, too?

Oh wait....you measured in inches. How quaint.

;^)

What part of " did you not understand? Come on, I was in the garage with the power tools and Chevrolet trucks, we use inches not that new fangled metric stuff.


.... hold on.... the truck engine is a 5.3 liter, not a 327 cubic inch engine. I'll resubmit the data


Reach 38.4
Stack 54.6
