    Who can help?

    I am looking at two different custom frames.
    1. Columbus Airplane with Carve seat stay & Fork; or
    2. Reynolds 853 with Carve fork

    I am 95kg so weight is only one criteria. I will be using it for weekend road rides/triathlons/races - not heavy stuff.

    Both frames are approximately the same $ so I am trying to work out which would be best.

    What is the life span of the Airplane framing???

    Kim can't tell you specifics but my new frame is Columbus Airplane and the shop I bought mine from the owner rides the same frame a Coppi KSC and he is close to my weight and size (I'm 200lbs(don't know what in Kilos) and 5' 10") and he has raced his for 4-5 years I think with no problems. I can tell you it feels very light though I haven't ridden it since I'm not finished building it yet.
