Another super tourist dx pannier rack, non disc version this time, from halfords, 24 less 20% cycle to work discount.
Turns out when I wiped out on the btwin last year I put a lovely large dent into the support Arms, and it's slowly been bending under strain on the oh's bike.
Intent on Cycling Commuting on a budget, but keep on breaking/crashing/finding nice stuff to buy.

Sweet! I'm very tempted by that frame, but not seeing full build prices is a negative, and am not overly fond of the colours on offer. For how much do you reckon you can build it?

Colours aren't great but the geo is near to perfect.

I'm not scrimping on groupset so it's not gonna be mega cheap but di2 hydro should mean zero maintenance. Then got some bits floating about already. So maybe 2500 all in?

I wanted a bowman pilgrim but doesn't take a rack and can't use a r2w voucher to buy it.
