    Strengths:    Paint scheme,Looks like a work of art. Sprints like crazy, good climbing and cornering.Very responsive and comfortable. Superb ride quality.

    Weaknesses:    The paintjob chips easilly, so you have to be extra careful.

    Bottom Line:   
    By far the best road bike i have ever riden, not the lightest though, if you compare it to a carbon bike. The ride level of this bike is so high, then it became so hard to come up with a reason to buy a new one.

    Strengths:    Paint scheme. Got the art decor. It does get compliments all the time, so be prepare for it.

    Weaknesses:    Paint chips easilly so you have to be really careful

    Bottom Line:   
    The ride speaks for itself. I know its pretty and evrything. My rig weights in at 18.8 Lbs size 51 built with Campy 10 spd mix of record and chorus. Not light by today's standards but once you get this rig going, it screams like a deamon. Stiff at the front end which makes it responsive but still enough to smoothen road bumps.

    Strengths:    Looks like a work of art
    smooth ride
    lugs with Colnago engravings


    Weaknesses:    chrome on seatstays has a little rust after 5 years

    Bottom Line:   
    I"ve had this frame for 5 years. In '2000, I upgraded the fork to the Colnago Flash and added an ITM Colnago stem. The Mapei color scheme is such a knockout that whenever I have work done at the bike shop, any customers present immediately come over and drool. The bike has a Record 8 speed and is about 19 pounds. It is only 4 oz. heavier than my Litespeed Ultimate and has a great ride quality.

    Strengths:    Springy lively feel.
    Tracks like it's on rails through sketchy corners
    Sprints like a demon
    Paintjob is awsome


    Weaknesses:    This bike rides so great it makes it hard to come up with a reason to buy a new one.

    Bottom Line:   
    I have had my Tecnos for almost 7 years and I can tell you without a doubt this is one of the most reliable frames I have seen.
    This bike even after this long feels like a coiled spring in a sprint and puts power to the pavement at a moments notice.

    Strengths:    Sprints like crazy, good climbing and cornering. Mapei colors are so gorgeous that I was afraid to take it on the road at first. Once I did it's been a real joy.

    Weaknesses:    The top tube seems a bit short for me and makes decents a bit shakey, but perhaps a longer stem will solve the problem. Many of the information I've read, including on this site, recomends this bike for 160lbs. or less, but I understand that the Tecnos 2000 is redesigned for all riders with no weight limits. I weigh 180 and have had no problems so far. The shop owner assured me that it's a strong frame, but I do worry about it. Also, the steel fork is heavy. Other that that I have no complaints.

    Bottom Line:   
    I got a great deal on this bike since it was used briefly and then traded up by the owner for a C-40. This is a great all-around bike. It's comfy on long rides and does everything that you want a road bike to do. Since it's steel, it might not be as light as aluminum, carbon or whatever else may come along, but it's plenty light enough and the weight of it is not an issue for me. If you want a to race a steel bike, this would be a great choice. The steel fork though is extra heavy, and I would recomend the carbon fork. Also, the workmanship is very good with the beautiful Colnago lugs, custom drawn tubes and hand painted quality, make if very nice to look at. The Rabobank frame is also nice.
