How laterally stiff did the frame feel? One of the complaints I have about most of the newer alloy bikes is that they feel really flexy compared to their carbon counterparts. I know some of the higher end alloy builders are making fairly stiff frames, I'm curious where this fits in.

I put an order in yesterday. It does turn out that the dropouts can be swapped between 135 and 142. He had a set of 142s left, so I purchased those. I also got a 120mm 51mm-offset Pike for a fork, I have a set of Guide RSCs, 50mm RF stem, and Santa Cruz carbon…

The wheelset I have here uses a 142x12 rear, so that makes the decision a little more complicated. Although, at almost $700 off the list price,…

How does this bike compare to some of the more expensive, high end steel frames, like Chromag and reeb? It looks like their frames are in the $600 range, which is significantly less expensive, but my understanding is that some of the more inexpensive steel frames (e.g. TransAM) lack the plushness and feel of the…
