New TT Frameset

Postby mjd » Wed Feb 20, 2013 11:48 am

Buying a new TT frame & was looking at the Stevens Volt on Torpedo7 https://www.torpedo7.com.au/products/XH ... meset-2012
Anybody had any experience with this brand ? Looked at the Chinese option but these are pretty well priced atm.

I can't speak for the tt frame specifically (fit and geometry wise anyway), but I spent quite some time drooling over the entire Stevens stand at the bike expo in Melbourne 2 years ago. I was very impressed with their road bikes including finish. I'm sure not much has changed in 2 years.

They have a warranty which you wouldn't get on a "import".

I really wanted their cx bike but I just couldn't makemy requirements fit the model I wanted :oops:

Planet x make really well regarded tt frames. Was about to pull the pin on one when they had my size for 700€ but I left it too long and they went back up in price.
Now for only 200€ more the Giant frame set is looking very good... Especially as it includeds brakes

I'd assume he is talking about France.

No I should have explained better... the Planet X frames were 700€ but have now gone back up to 1200€.... a Giant frame set is about 1400€.
