Hello.
Sorry for the late reply, been out in the field with work and only had a proper look on here today.
That Falco looks great! Do you have any more pic's?

I'm definitely after a no nonsense racing bike, just need to convince my girlfriend I need another bike.
I have raced Kinesis Cross bikes in the past and they were fine.

I still love the scandium merckx's the domo-farm frites team rode.
thanks
David

I have a Specialized Allez E5 and love it! It is stiff enough to race and more comfortable than my Venge.

I've found with the new wave of aluminium racing bikes, they perform just as well as carbon they just feel different (and a tad heavier).
The biggest difference between top end racing frames like the: caad, canyon, kinesis, allez etc and the top end carbon frames is the price, In my opinion I wouldn't bother buying anything inbetween but then again I did buy thishttp://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=126467.
yes, but how much does it weigh?
