Kinesis TK3 Alternatives? Advice please.
Hi all, after a recent accident I find myself in possesion of a functioning Tiagra groupset but lacking the frame to go with it. I only have a budget of around £500, maybe a bit more, to buy what will be the frame for my one and only bike and as such am looking for an all-rounder that will help me make the most of my Saturday club rides but also stand up to the rigours of commuting and the occasional bit of light touring. I am willing to sacrifice a bit of comfort for extra speed but rack and mudguard mounts are a must.
The Kinesis TK3 (soon to be rebranded the 4S, I gather) ticks all the right boxes and may well be what I end up with but I just wondered if anyone could suggest other options, either aluminium or steel I might consider? I do have a personal, not entirely logical preference for British or smaller companies...
