I'm a fan


I've seem them around and they look like pretty good value. I guess it's just a case of not knowing a brand and being unsure of the quality.

2009 model has full ultegra. Might see if I can have a look at this at the weekend...

Was getting sick of shopping around and looking all the time, and was wanting to just get out and ride. Had a look at this this morning, and it looked so good I picked it up. Haven't been out for a ride yet, but am looking forward to it. Full carbon, full Ultegra gruppo.
