Hi all,

Currently looking for a new roadbike and have £2,000 to play with (but need the bike in the next 7 days). This BeOne Raw Comp looks pretty recent for the money:

Any fellow owners here? or other recommendations?

Beone used to be part of the Batavus brand in Holland. Batavus then sold their sportive part to another company and batavus went on building Dutch bikes, like they always did.
The beone brand was sold on and didn't realy catch on anymore. The last company that carried them in Holland went belly up this year and with that the brand was put to rest.

I guess that the bike you are looking at might be a bike that was left over at the factory. And the seller that you are willing to buy it from bought it for a steal. Make sure that you get decent warranty if you buy it.

The visual element is lacking on these steeds.

We used to carry the RAW frames.....very decent frame for the $$$$. I did have a BB30 shell coming loose on one of the first models but later ones are good.
BB30, tapper steerer, internal cable routing....pretty fast frame.
Like Frankie-B mentioned they closed shop so be sure they will provide some kind of money back or replacement in case of the worst.
