After this winter, I am going to retire my Giant 980c Cadex frame, transfer the ancillaries to a new aluminium frame/fork, and in doing so create a new "2nd/winter" bike. Okay it'll have less character, but hopefully it will be a touch lighter and stiffer.

Bearing in mind I am looking for aluminium, clearance only for Crud MKIIs and budget of up to ~£500 what do you reckon my best options are?

Also, I'm not an expert when it comes to all the new bottom bracket types so it probably helps to let you know I will be using 2009 Veloce with an English thread UT crank and BB. That might not make any difference, but I don't know! :D


PS. if you have anything for sale in 56cm, then let me know and maybe we can do a deal.
