"Argento" Shimano flat bar and drop bar, ~£600/ ~£650 respectively.

Best priced London packages I've seen there, but personally, I cannot help but feel that the savings are a false economy... Because I would want to upgrade those BB7 mechanical disc brakes to proper hydraulics, adding ~£200 to the total outlay.

What say the rest of you, about these new models?

  • The flat bar is a bit odd. Surely it should have MTB BB7's?

    Facebook? No. Just say no.
  • The drop bar version mentions dual action STI shifters and the description so far does not mention brake spec at all, perhaps I have jumped the gun, basing my thoughts off the photo? ;)

    "Picture is an example please see spec table for details"

    Seems odd to post a new variant and not show it to the world with the default specs!

  • Yeah, weird one. In fact, it's probably cheaper to source some avid hydro brakes than get normal brake levers and a pair of BB7!
