Hi all my next frame is due, My venge R41 copy by velobuild has done its job but I want a proper frame to go with my Di2 running gear, rotor 3D+ crankset and Q rings :-)

I've got a £2000 limited and searching about my current list s below - HAVE I MISSED ANYTHING OUT ??

** Needs to be 30mm axle ** Rotor 30mm

Frameset only (forks, frame & seatpost)

No good 24mm spindle only - Trek SL £1350 (local store is 5 min drive away, back up support etc ideal) Trek Coventry UK
Scott Foil
Giant TCR advanced SL £2000
Cannondale (not made my mind up on model yet ?? )
Ridley (do they do a superlight ?)

what have i missed ?

Canyon seem not to be a great deal on just frames

56 might be a tadge small for me but cracking price and frame weight :thumbup:

Cipollini bond looks decent £1600 @ Westbrooks FLURO yellow :-)


just weight my taken apart Venge copy 1.3kg frame and 475g forks (jesus heavy climbing bike that)

Well they do offer a discount if you hold a race license, which makes the frames more attractively priced. I picked up my CF SL for £799.

The Cipo Bond is a great frame, and if you couple it with some 25mm tubs then it's awsome :-)

Cipo are not lightweight! Medium unpainted Bond weighs in at 1050g so 1250 painted. If you just want lightweight then the TCR is great as are the Scott Addict, Spec Tarmac and they can be had for around £2k if you look around.

Sigma Sport have the Cannondale Super Six evo hi-mod for £1300 which weighs in at under 700g for the frame and a nice Parlee Z5i for £2200 which is pretty light. They also have a few 2014/5 Tarmacs for £2000 depending on what size you need

The job is done after testing the trek SL that wasn't for me, I've dived in and bought the Ridley helium SL in matte black and green in the flesh looks a stunning frame should be here next week [THUMBS UP SIGN]
