    WOW, this is one of the most beautiful AL bikes I've seen in a very long time. Nice straight round tubes (level tt big plus in my book), seatpost (another big plus, can't seem to get on board with the seat mast thing). Can I get one in say a 51 or 52 ctc seat tube with a 54 ctc top tube?

    ryun, i dunno what your occupation is, but whatever it is, it appears to pay a lot better than engineering (what i do) given all the amazing bikes you have (or have had). :)

    i'd be curious how the IFs, SVs, gaulzettis, etc. compare. do share!

    I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but are gaulzettis distributed by svelte cycles or are they custom and he just orders them similar to an ifab or something like that?

    Check the Gaulzetti Smoked Out thread. That should get the point across.

    Default My Gaulzetti Corsa Feminin!

    I've been waiting eagerly to share with the world what has been my ultimate-extreme-awesome-bestest experience with my fourth custom bike; I was so geeked upon recieving my Gaulzetti Corsa Féminin that perhaps waiting until I had a full season riding would be the most fair. The truth is, I am saying exactly what I would have said after my first delightful ride. Novelty has not "given way" to harsh reality, the glimmer has not worn off and the reality is awesome.

    In colloquial terms, this is the best turning bike I've ever ridden. People may make fun of me for saying that, but it's so true that I can't help but gush about that aspect of my bike. I want to be more specific and avoid vague, overused terms like "handling", "stiff" and so on. I can take corners on this baby faster than any other bike I've owned, and it has given me a much needed advantage over my competitors with lesser-handling bikes in criteriums. I think the key was Craig's attention to my weight balance over the wheels, focusing on handling versus fit numbers only. He's a purported expert on front-center and bike geometry, and now I see why. He never even personally fitted me. He had my previous fit data, riding criteria, and knew exactly what I wanted. I think it's pretty difficult to design a great-handling bike for shorties like me working around the contraints of a 700c wheel. I was a little nervous about how the bike was going to fit since none of my other custom bikes turned out perfect, and I had personal, physical fitting sessions for those bikes. Never before have I felt at home on my hoods; they were either too high and too far away or too close and low. As soon as I jumped on my corsa, my hands went right for the hoods, and they felt so good. Thousands of miles later, no changes to my stem or spacers. They were perfect from the get-go.

    I recently went on a bike tour along the coast of Maine, using a custom lugged steel road bike that shall remain unnamed because my point is not to disparage this bike or framebuilder as he does great work and makes reputable bikes. Let's just say it rhymes with Snowbillet. I thought steel bikes were supposed to be more real, or whatever. I hadn't ridden this bike in a while, and it is certainly a nice bike but... it made realize how PLANTED my Corsa feels. Definately more solid, and definately more comfortable. And my Corsa is aluminum! People be like, all afraid of aluminum n' stuff, and I totally understand why. All you can really find in aluminum production bikes are super-ass-hammers, even in the shrinking population of high-end aluminum models. I don't know if it's the Gaulzetti's custom designed (maybe proprietary?) Dedacciai tubeset, or the geometry, or a combination of these factors, but my frame is in truth the most comfortable race bike I've ever ridden. It is my race bike and it is my 100-mile scenic go-slow-go-fast bike. I thought I would use the Gaulzetti for racing, and and the steel and ti bikes for centuries, but all I ever ride now is my Gaulzetti.
