Finally picked up my Ltd Edition Team carbon yesterday and had 50 miles on it today, can only say it looks awesome in the flesh and even better to ride!
Delighted with the purchase and the staff at Halfords Edinburgh were great, i'm well chuffed i finally decided to go for one and he said I officially had the last ltd edition in the uk :)

    Very nice, although I think I'd end up with some cleaning OCD with that much white on a bike.

    I'm off for a lemon curd sandwich.

    That's a great looking bike, how will you keep those tyres white ??

    Lol a quick wipe down so far, but I have some Pro Race 3's which will be going on soon so the white tyres will be going!

    awesome bike. i am considering the team carbon, although obviously not the ltd edition, but can you recommend it? does it ride well? any upgrades necessary?
  • sam1176uksam1176uk Posts: 524
    Hi Sparan,

    I thought about the team carbon for months before finally going for it, I can honestly say i am delighted with it. I previously had a Cube Peloton and I am much quicker on the Boardman, the set up from Halfords was spot on as well to be fair, not needed to do anything except put my saddle down a fraction.

    Wouldn't say there are any necessary upgrades although that's up to yourself, i find the wheels great and the saddle is fine.

    Keep it white. Mind you, you are going to have to get an awesome tan to ride that bike. :wink:

    The bike rides well, saddle might need changing, brakes could be better. I got hold of two yellow Zefal water bottles and yellow dust caps, both finish the colour scheme off nicely. I got plenty of looks as I rode and people asking questions at pub/cafe stops. It looked so good that I was targeted by sh*t thieves and I no longer have it anymore, Such is life, am now looking for a secondhand one or will go for the pro carbon, but colours boring but might not attract thieves. Enjoy it but be careful.

    Yellow saddle and bar tape
    Black hoods
    Break up bit of the white and brake levers look better with black hoods
    Might be bit garish for some though

    That looks freaking awesome... Dare to be different and keep it the way it is i say. Individuality is always put down, which is no doubt why so many numbheads walk about with Manchester United shirts on their backs!

    I do like white cables though... so if i owned one (and i would love to) i might get some white Jagwires :lol:

    Find your limits...and then exceed them frequently

    nice but a see thru white paint job to show the weave would have been better, thats just me being jealous!
    who cares?
