    The megalite is a steel frame, cheaper made than the cp. I'll look later but I'm pretty sure it's the same brand steel as the cp - Deddacci or whatever it is - rides great. No adjustable rear dropouts, but they are semi-horizontal. I bought this frame from excel sports boulder about 10 or so years ago I think. Turns out this is a duplicate post from a couple of days ago - I apologize for my memory!

    Thanks for sharing your Gios' everyone.

    Now there's a bike you know isn't sub-contracted to the far east.

    definitely think they are a very under-rated marque. though i've been seeing some of their vintage stuff really rise in prices on ebay recently. my gioses are definitely keepers.

    Moschika, that's a beautiful bike! and Nenad, I found a sticker on the megalite that said "european made" leading me to think somebody in eastern europe welded the frame together. Great fixed gear bike.

    Dave, that sticker (if I remember it correctly as I've seen it on few other bikes) implies EU, not all of Europe. Regardless, I find it amusing we are all super stoked about our blue bikes.

    I love my Compact Pro. I have it dialed in and ready for some centuries this year.

    Sweet brakes those Chorus. I just picked some up for the 753 Peugeot I'm re-building, and to be honest I didn't know the difference between the two 'till I saw it there.

    Thanks.

    Gios Compact Pro 52

    Anyone know what the detailed Geometry is on the newer Compact Pro in a size 52.
    i.e.: the HT angle and HT length. Also, can the Rear drop out be adjusted rearward? Thanks

    If head tube for my size 58 Gios is 16 cm, then I would think for size 52 it would be 10 cm.

    Angle should be 74 degrees.

    Dropouts are adjustable rearward (not really sure what you are asking here...)
