Jeremy, FWIW; This summer I've done one regular century ride & half dozen metric centurys on my '74 Calif. Masi,a '72 Paramount P-13, & a D.M. Hetchins with vibrant rear stays. All 3 are plenty responsive without beating me up. The best part about doing long rides on older lugged steel frames is passing all the titanium & carbonfiber bikes on the hills! I would think any of the well know top end lugged frames would do well if setup correctly. Let us know what you decide on. Happy hunting, Greg Brooks, Ridgetop,TN
