    I have a love / hate relationship with my Alloy Willier (Montegrappa Sora).

    When I've just cleaned it and it's gleaming in the sunlight I love it (even though some of the welds look like they might have been done by a chimp on LSD).
    When I'm fresh out on it and the wether's good I love it.
    After about 20 miles, I hate it - but that's my fault, I bought too big, I start to get some horrible shoulder / hand pain.

    I'd probably buy another, but they tend to come up a bit expensive when compared to other brands in the shops I can get to.

    I had a Wilier Triestina until recently, alloy frame, carbon forks and rear triangle. It was a fabulous bike, it loved to climb, and it was beautiful. Sadly a neck injury meant I couldn't ride the bike any more and I've had to get something more upright than I could achieve with a riser stem on the Wilier.

    I loved that bike. I called her Gina. Her paintjob was a bit shoddy and kept flaking off, but that was a problem with a specific batch of those bikes and it's been sorted now as I understand it. And, yes, the welds were awful to look at. But who looks at someone else's welds, really?

    No weld problem on a carbon frame. Love my 2nd hand Izoard XP. It seems to be the/one of the runts of the Italian behind the obvious Bianchi's and Pins but its got some lovely curves and I love that its a bit rarer on the roads - not that that makes any difference.

    I can't offer a technical opinion because I'm so new to cycling but suffice to say I bloody love mine! Will try and sort out my gallery of one pic so I can link to it...
