i came across a german bike company called red bull bikes they had some very light carbon bike at a reasonable price anyone had any dealings with this company
we've tested one of their alu bikes (http://road.cc/content/review/16634-red-bull-pro-sl-3000) and we've had a good look at the carbon ones too, as we used to share an office with the UK agent. They're good value and well put together, very stiff cause that's the way the Germans like 'em (and the German magazines test 'em)
worth knowing that for 2011 they're rebranded to Rose bikes, which is the parent company. www.rosebikes.co.uk
We've got some on the slate for testing in the coming months too, both carbon and aluminium
think i will have a closer look one would go nicely with the new pedals!!
