Hi
Anybody know anyone with a carbon road bike for sale, it needs to be a small frame, i'm looking at spending about £1000.
Fed up of ebay, you have your eye on a bike then it goes up by about £800 in ten minutes

I will nip in and suggest this:

It has been the go to suggestion for a sub £1000 carbon bike here for a while, well £999 is sub a grand. And 'new' should take some stress out of it.

If you are going to watch ebay I would suggest using a tool like auctionsniper. Save your frame size and material on ebay and wait for the emails to come in. Place you bid on the sniper and it will bid once at the very end for you. If you win you win, you won't have to hike your bid and effectively be bidding against yourself. It means you bid just once and set what you can afford, if someone outbids you, hard cheese, but it is too late to give in to temptation and increase your bid.

It goes up that much because that's what it's worth...

For that price you'd do better with aluminum and a better groupset/wheels.

Possibly worth considering a new 2013 bike which may be reduced now that 2014 bikes are in stock.

I too can't help thinking that you may get a better specced bike or have money left for nice wheels if you considered alu.
