Here's what others have to say...

3 5

The first disappointment with this frame was how it was made. It had a sticker on it that said hand made in Italy, but I couldn't believe that something with such poor craftsmanship could be anything but a Taiwanese bike. I was right. Turns out its ok in Italy to call something "hand made in Italy" if it was painted there. So don't buy this bike if you want a bike hand made in Italy.

The next problem was that the headset bearings were bad. This is because when they bearings are pressed into the frame it takes a huge amount of lateral pressure on the bearing body and they are not designed for it. I was really confused by the lack of engineering in such an expensive bike.

My other bike is a Time, so I am spoiled. I found that this bike was heavy and not comfortable at all. Super stiff and unforgiving. It is also a bit heavy.

The only thing that this bike has going for it is that it is beautiful. If that is worth the insane price tag, then go for it.
