    Surely you'd be more comfortable (not to mention able to use the drops better) if you rotate the bars down and the shifters up?

    Looks nice.. but you need to get the red version of red ;)

    yeah, would have been perfect, but picked up the full groupset off here for a great price, so had to go with the flow!(yellow)
  • Looks good.

    What did it cost?

    Did you have to pay import duty / VAT?
  • oli2001oli2001 Posts: 350
    cost £410 for frame, forks, seatpost headset & bars (including £35 for painting + £55 for posting) so about £320 for unpainted frame, could have had it unpainted in any carbon finish; UD, 3k or 12k weave, matt or gloss. The areas in the photo that look black are actually 3k carbon weave gloss; looks pretty ace close up.
    Wheels were £430
    Paid £8 import on the wheels and £35 on the frame, Got them to price up very low value on the boxes.

    not sure whether to add graphics to the wheels or not? thinking of fulcrum racing speed xlr
  • Lovely looking bike !
    Did you buy the frame and wheels from a web site ?

    Enjoy your new bike.

    frame and bits from miracle trading and the wheels from farsports. Loads of positive reviews etc online. My experience was excellent with both companies.
