Trek 6.9 ssl - 700 series OCLV
So I'm looking at a new bike, but found a deal on the above frame for £1250. Half price, basically. I can build it up for not much more than I'll pay for a madone 4.7, so it seems like a steal. However, I can't test ride it (frameset only currently) and don't know if it might be too stiff with no comfort, or handle a bit too twitchily? Plan to use it for club runs, sportives, a few time trials etc. will see regular use; I.e. it mustn't be too fragile as it won't be mollycoddled.
Also, it has mounts for those new funny bontrager speed limit integrated brakes, with the rear one under the chainstay(!). No idea how much those might cost...
