You can find amazing (slightly used) carbon frames for $800 like supersix evo hi-mods, s-works, treks, giants, cervelos... pretty much anything you wish. The worst option is to buy a no name chinese one IMO.

How much is a caad 12? I bought a disc version (last years colour though) in the uk for £450. Latest versions are more though.

Thank you all for the input everyone. I will keep a steady eye on the used market and wait for something ideal to pop up. To the user who sent me a private message - it seems I'm not able to reply. Send me your email and I can get back to you.

Cheers all!

Check out the 2017 Fuji Roubaix Alum frame/full carbon fork
http://www.fujibikes.com/usa/bikes/road ... lite-frame

MSRP is $649 but places like Performance Bike has it for $599 then gives 15-20% at various holidays etc

You know I really think this is a sleeper of a frame. I have the 2016 frame & it rides great
This newer 2017 saved weight by going anodized instead of paint 1090gr frame not bad for Alum

I had written Fuji earlier this year & this is what they said about it
"The 2017 Roubaix frame has been completely redesigned; it is 100g lighter at 1090g for the raw frame and is able to accomplish a stiffer head tube and bottom bracket shell to boot.
The fork is almost 250g lighter as well.
Additionally the Roubaix Elite is Anodized; which saves an additional 75-125 grams on paint weight."

thats my recommandation as well (if fit is ok for you). those are really cheap at the moment. i got one for 800.-, nearly perfect condition (used by a woman for 2 years).
ok, super six evos are nothing special, maybe a little bit ordinary, but absolutely ok for this price (especially considering weight)

Hello all!

Looking to upgrade my cheap aluminum frame with something nicer and lighter. I would prefer to spend around $500 but could push upwards to about $800 if the extra is worth it. Any recommendations on what road frame sources/makers I should be looking at in this range? One thing I am NOT interested in is bare carbon frames. I have no problem with Chinese products, but I am not interested in a bike that has an unpainted CF finish. Let me know if theres any other info I can provide to help.

Cheers!


Go used. You will be happier in the end and with a better quality frameset. I would personally search eBay, various bike forum classified sections...etc.

Older Cervelo R3
Cannondale SystemSix Hi-Mod
CAADs (9/10/12)
Look 585
Older Specialized Tarmac
Giant TCR Advanced

Really too many good used options to mention them all. Just keep your eye out, you are bound to eventually find something in your price range that will be a quality purchase.


This ^^^

If you are in the USA Craigslist is another option.

If you do not mind,
Used frame is also a good choice.
