We got burgled in October and I had a couple of my bikes taken - the commuter and the Sunday best. After much swearing and cursing the little sh*ts that did it I realised that this was actually a blessing in disguise as I'd get the insurance money and be able to build a couple of bikes to the spec I wanted.
The Sunday best is a Cervelo R5 that's just waiting for the BBRight/GXP adapter to arrive from the US (but that's another story) and then it'll be complete.
For the commuter/training bike, I managed to buy a DA/Ultegra gruppo + wheels from a friend and I was going to put them on a Genesis Equilibrium. I wandered into Evans (I know...) on 17 December and ordered my size. After a week of chasing they just called me to tell me that there's going to be a bit of a delay in it arriving. Current estimate is the 3rd....of April!
So now I need a plan B. I want a frameset that I can train on and commute on, doesn't weigh a metric ton, looks good and wont' cost the same as the R5. I'd also like to be able to put mudguards on it, so something with the eyes built in, ideally.
