Hi,

Has anyone got on of these out there. Off to have a look at one this weekend....

Would be interested to hear your thoughts on them - and as i can't search....

Cheers,

Will.

This really needs to be a sticky it's been asked so often!
The simple answer is: they are f'kin amazing for the money. Simple as that.

I bought one 2 months ago and I am really pleased with it. Only thing is I have now put it away for the winter
The week after my purchase they improved the offer to the latest build and since then it has once more improved!
The service seemed pretty good as well

If that doesn't come back and bite you, i'd be surpised. Enjoy it though.

2011: Now to go faster. Then IronMan Wales came along, so the speedwork can wait until 2012

Nice one!

As long as everything fits i'm ordering on Fri

I'm prob going for a set of their 50mm wheels as well - but have no idea about tubulars... £400 seems pretty damn cheap though!! - well compared to other wheels.

If I ever get to buy myself a new bike I'm thinking of telling the Gat officer that "I've finally committed to buying something that's carbon based, very sparkly and cost a fair few thousand"...pause for effect, then wheel out the new bike. I think she'd appreciate the joke

Some of the best things in life may be free, but the very best comes as three.

Somehow, I don't think she would!

I think not either, apart from the carbon bling that you had just unveiled you would definitely achieve a weight saving as I think you would be minus a couple of things

It seemed like a good idea at the time!!
