    All gone Hal fords...
  • always liked the frames on the pro carbon with the UD weave in matt. You've made a few up grades, they usually come kitted out with Sram dont they? Looking spot on though mate!

    Thanks, yeah this frame is off the race prepared model that came with sram and zipp 404 wheels, think the team carbon of that year came with sram rival if i remember right!

    Im a store manager for halfords and last year they where selling off spare parts to colleagues, frame cost £60 and forks £25, originally about £800! So far i think I've maybe spent £800 altogether which is pretty reasonable for the spec i think!

    With so much layback on the saddle, a long stem and a massive stack of spacers I have to ask the question.....sure that frame isn't too small for you?? Good price though....

    Nah frames fine! 57.5cm I'm 6ft 3, the spacers I need to drop a couple, just didn't want to cut the forks to short to start with, the stem is only 100mm, I did have a 130mm but ended up changing to smaller one!

    As said above it's not exactly a long stem. A bigger frame wouldn't affect saddle setback either.

    I have no idea what's going on here.

    Fair enough, stem looks longer on the photos, must be an optical illusion. @declan1 it would if a lot of layback was being used to compensate for a top tube that was too short....

    anyway, nice bulid, enjoy it.

    I'm assuming that he's not adjusting saddle position to compensate for stem length.
