I'm just building a Litespeed L1r as a race frame, was interested in it for the bb386 bottom bracket, the frame is about 800gbp.

I just stumbled across this new frame by the German brand Quantec: http://quantec.ccmsport.de/index.php?id=66 Looks pretty sweet IMHO. Tapered head tube, internal cable routing for mechanical and electronic. 469 € for the frame without a fork.

And Pro-Lite has updated their Cuneo with a tapered head tube for 2013: http://www.pro-lite.net/road-frames/cuneo-gp#page

By the way, who bought the last Pro-Lite Cuneo for 130 GBP from Chain Reaction Cycles? That was supposed to be mine >:| ;-)

Allez OSBB. Its knocking on the door of the best available, at a fraction of the cost.


I raced a 2012 Allez OSBB and didn't have any complaints. You can occasionally find frames cheap on eBay and they're a lot hardier than CAADs - my buddy crashed his CAAD10 and managed to bend the down tube. Not saying that couldn't happen on an Allez, but they're a lot cheaper to replace since you seem to be budget minded.
