Most parts are used or new at a bargain price...
Fork is new from USA for £422 which I thought was a great investment and the best bargain was the wheelset...
A great guy in Brighton sold them to me, in 'as new' condition, posted for £115!! And then even threw in the unused Baron tyres for free! :D Could'nt believe my luck! :lol:
The FSA crankset was a bargain at £59.99 brand new also...
Haven't had it out for a ride yet but hopefully will test it soon... Can't wait! :wink:
