The Echelon is a fine example of Italian frame building, for those cyclists who want a good all-round machine, comfy enough for longer events and training rides. It's robust enough to absorb shocks from the road. You get a lot for your money; great heritage, fantastic looks and durability. The Echelon will be with you for years a great starting point for those who don't want to follow the heard.
In the words of Alessandro Guerciotti:
"It is a medium range (no entry level). It is for amateur use. It is for customer who wishes to start on cycling but choosing for something better that a full alloy frameset (echelon has a carbon rear stay). Besides this frame could be made also on custom size. It is a perfect frame also for heavy and big riders (we have made also frames in size 62 - 63 -64 for north Europe customers )"

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can vary greatly with riders' torso length. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for a slightly shorter stem. If you think you are borderline between sizes, and you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for the smaller frame size. If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, go for the larger frame size to get the extra top tube length.
As the frame sizes increase, so does the length of the head tube. If you are inflexible or perhaps have a history of back problems, consider going for a larger frame size. This will increase the relative height of the handlebars making the position less “extreme”. The larger frame will also have a longer top tube, so you’ll need to compensate for this with a shorter stem.
