I'm trying to decide between these two carbon frames. I'm 6'2" tall and I'm curently riding a 2001 Trek 5200. There's nothing wrong with my Trek, but something new is always nice. My one concern is that they both have sloping geometry. The Wilier is about $400 more. Both frames seem pretty similar to me, does anyone have any feedback about either one? Does anyone have any experience coming off a tradional frame to one that is sloping?

From a pure frame performance standpoint, I don't think sloping makes a whit of difference. I tried my first one last year, added 3 more production frames (of varying degree,) built a custom that way and just ordered another custom with the same design parameters. I like the way they look, and beyond that the sloping top tube has not changed my life at all.


and oh yea, between those two - Bianchi all the way.
