I'm in no rush as (hopefully) we still have some good weather left!

I decided to sell my Genesis Croix de Fer as it just wasn't getting used and to be fair was just too heavy for training on so i've decided the new build is going to be built around the Planet X superlight team alu.....

Today i've ordered the frame and an FSA headset, should be hear tomorrow. I managed to get 20% off the frame as i had a previous warranty issue outstanding so the nice guys @ Planet X applied this.

I've also ordered a 5700 105 groupset from for around £365 so again another great deal.

the only other thing i have so far is a pair of lightly used (150 miles) wheels, handbuilt tiagra hubs on open pro CD rims with DB spokes, very nice @ only £75! Tyres are my own from off the C de F when used on the road.

The plan is to get some easton EC90 carbon forks and some nice (but cheap) finishing kit, target build cost is sub £700.

I'll update this page as and when stuff arrives, please feel free to offer any advice or encouragement :D
