Subject: [CR]Gios Compact Pro......

Just a few questions for the list ;

- Does it qualify for discussion on the list ? (It's Not within the date range, but it's by a classic manufacturer, it's Italian, it's lugged and it's steel.....)

- Is it any good ?

- Who else from the classic 'names' figures for similar "production" lugged steel frames (other than the more obvious Colnago "classic")

I'm contemplating buying a new Gios, and would value any comments. I'm weary of carbon shake rattle and roll....and would like a replacement (sub 1 kg fashion frames don't impress me anymore - been there done that won't go back)

any input greatly valued !
