Go out and treat yourself to an expensive replacement, the cyclists comfort equivalent of opening the chocolate cupboard.
dunno. its only a Carrera, altho having said that it was their top of the range one. my mate at work told me to check.Elmer Fudd said:Is the frame not covered by a lifetime guarantee ? At least you would have a spare frame if you buy the carbon one.
honest maggot, i wouldn't kill her, she was gonna be my commuting bike. but i will admit to seeing a nice pinarello in the shop when i went to talk to the lads after. even so, "add not replace" is my motto ! she was a loverly colour too!User76 said:Buggi, I think it's time you were honest with yourself and us isn't it? Your trip to the bike show resulted in a rather rash expenditure on a new Madone and you need to psychologically justify it to yourself Come on, own up, come clean, it took you ages with that junior hacksaw blade didn't it??????
Obviously I may be wrong, though I rarely am, and if so, then sieze this opportunity with both hands and get yourself to a decent on-line retailer/LBS and purchase that new bike, you know it makes sense.
mine was a vengeance, it had a "superlight magnesium" frame. i know you have to look after them, but i presumed if it was gonna go, it would be near the bottom bracket, where the shoot off the road would have affected it.alecstilleyedye said:was the frame 7005 aluminium or 6061 aluminium? getting worried as i suspect my virtuoso is the same frame as yours buggi. commiserations btw
