Sorry, nothing in our stable fits that bill. If you could stand a few more pounds the 610 would meet all that criteria or if you weren't hard set on the 550 cc the 510 might work.

The 610 weighs in at about 135 kilos, the 510 is about 20 kilos less. The 610 is practically bullet proof while the 450/510 are more competition oriented and require more maintenance, that's not to say that the 450/510 are fragile they just weren't made to be rode year after year without extensive service.

When you ask about alloy frames I assume you mean aluminum, the answer to that is no they are made out of chromolly steel and while many think that it is old school some of us believe that the steel frames are superior to the aluminum ones. There really is no significant difference is the weight of a well designed steel frame and a aluminum one, the difference is in the fact that the aluminum frames are made more rigid which some of us believe is the wrong approach (steel has feel).
