    A new ti frame delivered for £279. Tell me why I shouldn't.

    I have few qualms about build quality. It won't be a high spec frame but for the money, who care?

    The only bugbear is the plain frame (get some decals made?)

    and doing business with China - but how can you avoid it nowadays.

    A chap on Another Cycling Forum did it - his impressions are here.
     
  3. Yes, someone did it on C+ : have a look on BR and see if it's archived

    Just took delivery of my crosser last weekend. $US800 including delivery plus some Ti bottle cages and a Ti stem. I was fully expecting to have pay duty as I'd had to pay for a groupo delivered from the US but not a whisper. Hoping to get it built up soon with my old DA g/set, Spesh carbon disc fork, Avid discs and a pair of Deore/DRC wheels. It won't be light but it will be cool!
