    Does anyone have an opinion on Wilier frames in general and specifically on the Izoard model.

    I was considering a Pinarello Prince, but am 95% leaning toward a Wilier Izoard instead.

    The small amount of info I have been able to find speaks very favorably of the Izoard and I have a chance to buy one at 1/2 of retail price.

    Thoughts / opinions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have not ridden one but the Wilier riders I have met on the road have all been very positive.

    this may or may not mean something to you, but Maestro-UK stopped carrying Wiliers because of defects and breakage problems.... according to Mike, Wilier was not very good at responding to warranty issues or problems in general.

    BTW, i think they're beautiful frames!

    Don't know if this will make any difference with your decision, but Yan Ullrich has ridden one in the last couple TDF's (TT bike).
