    Ultra Foco vs. EOM 16.5 vs. S3

    which among these three 'elite' steel tubes makes the best (lightest and stiffest) road race frame?

    Columbus Ultra Foco Thermacrom (example: cevelo)
    Dedacciai EOM 16.5 (example: viner)
    True Temper S3 (example: waterford)


    i'm not the fastest (or even fast) rider, but i still want the best steel frame...

    I dunno, but I race/ride Deda's EOM 16.5 tubing in my Ciocc. Pinarello Opera uses it too. For steel, it's about as light as you can get I think. When you rap on the sides of my tubes, they sound quite thin like a Coors can, yet I've been riding/racing it for 3 years. I think it's the bomb.

    www.zarinternational.com imports them to U.S.

    16.5 EOM is bad-ass

    The Deda 16.5 steel/carbon rear bikes are sweet. Many Italian manufacturers make them, so go with the one which fits you best. Some examples: DeRosa Corum Carbon, Pinarello Opera, Moser,. That Ciocc, very nice. I like the silver.
