    Well at least the S3 is a nicer colour scheme than the limited edition olympic colours - that was just silly. I would still rather have the normal black and silver though.

    Btw this is to commemorate Sastre's TdeF win in 08 and they've just brought them out - bit late isn't it?

    ooh now I like the limited edition Olympic colours but not keen on the TdF limited edition colour.



    Isn't personal taste a funny thing? :?

    looks a bit ordinary for that sort of cash - preferred the red white

    Or perhaps "Boardmanesque"?

    I liked the Olympic special ed white.

    Black and yellow - how imaginative! The reason it's taken so long is they've spent so long sorting out all the quality problems - like the ability to fit Super Record. Don't worry the Di2 version will be along shortly, proably for another £500 premium!
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Don't forget the wheel compatibility issues!

    ...agreed.
    ...or maybe they've been looking at the Boardman range? :lol:
    Cycling weakly
  • +1 on the Livestrong/Boredman LookaLikee.

    I really liked the Olympic frameset, just wish I'd had the Wonga to buy one.

    You don't need top end, I've got a fully booted SLC-Sl with all second hand stuff although quite a bit I bought new, I promise you will only be upset when you win on one as the surprise will overwhelm you. I'm glad I lishened to my heart and ignored the poor wallet, £2000 all told for a top end bike. Thank you Mr C.

    How did you build it for 2k when the frame is more than that, Don key? Interesting that it is all second hand with quite a bit new!

    I'm glad your interesting.

    £1200 for a year old frame( SPOTLESS)

    £600 for three year old Boras with veloflex supplied.

    £65 for 06 record Cranks( bought new by me )

    £20 for 06 centaur front mech (new)

    bottom bracket chorus £20

    Chain £17(newish)

    new cableset £25

    Three carbon headset spacers £5

    Plus all the rest off the expired frame(worthless but working fine)

    There is your 2 grans.

    Coshed me nothing really and goes like a hoshnot.

    It's pointless buying new when it cripples the fine ants is, it's equally pointless buying a £1500 pound bike if performance is desired/required. Never buy a frame from fences as they are uncomfortable to sit on for any lenght but there are loads of takers.
