So this is not a best bike for a £1000 post, but a best (IYHO) £1000 frame set. I am happy to go + 50% but will try and stick to the grand if possible.
So far I have looked at every thing from Colnago to Raliegh.
My personal faves so far are:
Starley & kinesis Aithein, also the ribble aero frame has caught my eye, and for no other reason than I like the look.
Not interested in far sports china etc, and I have searched ebay for weeks... But 4 year old colnagos are going for the nearly new price on the odd occasions, which I find ridiculous.
So if anyone has had any good experiences with buying a brands frame set let me know.
I weigh 77kg, I like to ride my bike as fast as I can, and also just pootle in the sunshine without the numbers. I love hills so lightness is a factor.
Any and all objective comments welcome.
