    It's a picture of a bike. Other than that, it's difficult to offer any more meaningful comment.

    Fairly old model. Non-series chainset. Brakes aren't Chorus either. Gearing not much use if you live anywhere hilly. Only 23mm wide tyres. Wouldn't be getting my 1200 notes.
  • it's a four year old bike.
    The carbon will be deteriorating by now if its been stored in a cold warehouse.

    I've just posted the same reply on another thread, but I'm guessing your account's been hacked?

    I think your £1200 could buy considerably better. I don't know much about the Forme brand but never liked the look of them and always sort of considered them a budget brand but that's just my opinion.

    Really? I know it's not a full Chorus group but for £1200 that looks like a very good deal to me if the frame is any good. It was £3000 worth of bike when it was new.

    OP, I think Forme might be in a bit of flux at the moment so bare that in mind if you go for it. I would guess warranties on components wouldn't be an issue as you would do it through the shop, but frame/fork issues might be.

    Seems ok but far better bikes available at the price. Everyone has sale bike on ATM
