Frame Shopping

Recommended Posts

Ok, from my poll to try and find out what factory bikes are hot and whats not, it became clear that buying a frame and building a bike is the best way to go.

 

The question, which shops sell which frames? Please let me know if u've seen some affordable carbon frames (and where)

 

I was at westdene lunchtime today, man they got some nice stuff, but cheapest frame was 15k for a Bianchi (quite awesome, but id like to weigh up some options)

 

If I can get a nice frame between 9 and 12k I;d have enough spare for ultegra groupset and those bling wheels ;)

 

Thanks for all the comments and help on the poll.

Those Leggera frames I mentioned on the previous thread are worth looking at

I think the frame is about 10 or 10.5k

Damn nice looking

 

Check www.leggera.com to seeSmile

 

Is that the frame price of the Leggera Carbon Compact?  Any idea what the frameset weighs?

Can't offer specifics on frames/prices/etc, BUT: I would recommend spending as much as possible on a frame/fork/wheel combo and upgrade as it becomes possible. Frames [generally] outlasts components and is the first impression anyone gets of your bike...

Please note: I have attempted to pay for advertising on the site, but no answer from you. P.S. Giving advise to someone is not advertising.

Personally i dont mind the advice or advertising! There are WAY too little bike equipment offered online in SA ! :)

Might be a bit out of your way, but was at Cycles Direct yesterday and they are getting rid of some carbon Specialized frames for 8k. I THINK it was a tarmac frame but could be wrong. They are in Cape Town but dont see why they cant send it up to Joburg.

 

Just something about specialized, but they make really beautifull looking frames.

Ooooo, I have a soft spot for the tarmac.  Might pop around there!

Also, can someone sort marvuli.com out to advertise on theHub?! They have some schweet deals on Ksyriums at the moment and everyone should know about them.  Just keep a set of ES's for me!
