I'm building up a backup bike. I'm looking for the best second-hand frameset for under $1200. It can also be new as long as it is at or under $1200. I'm not a lightweight (6-2, 200lbs). I was looking at the Specialized Allen DSW frameset. Thoughts?

That's a pretty large budget. I would think that you could get carbon fiber frames from all the major brand names second hand within that range. (Trek, Cannondale, Specialized, Giant etc.)

Allez is a great choice. Also LOTS of love for the CAAD series.

There seem to be a lot of lightly used BH aero road frames in the Austin area. Last time I checked, about a year ago.

I really love Specialized but if you're looking at aluminum CAAD12 should be at the top of your list along with Allez Sprint. And you can get a complete bike in that price range.

Adrenalin Bikes take a look at the Volagi Liscio frameset for $999: https://www.adrenalinebikes.com/store.c ... tid=161340 .

Adrenalin also has this Felt frameset: https://www.adrenalinebikes.com/store.c ... tid=188918

Adrenalin also has a Lynskey on closeout; see: https://www.adrenalinebikes.com/store.c ... tid=173374 but that one will need a fork added to the price.
