Hi everyone. Was just after some advice, I have a 2010 Trek 1.5 road bike, but unfortunately I have damaged the frame and the forks in a crash such that they are now unuseable. As the other components are still fine, I'm looking into getting a new frame and forks which I can transfer the components over to. Does anyone have any suggestions for frames which are suitable? I really need something quite cheap (student budget) but which isn't too difficult to deal with, as I'm no mechanic! A friend suggested kinesis frames, does anyone have any experience with them at entry level?
The Kinesis Racelite TK3 is a bike that's truly greater than the sum of its parts, a proper race bike for all conditions that's just as at home on the commute, the chaingang or trundling round the lanes.
Phrases like 'power bulged top tube' and 'tapered carbon monocoque fork' are normally seen in the marketing blurb of the latest handbuilt carbon superbike - not aluminium steeds designed for mudguards and 28mm tyre clearance. The Kinesis is a little different though.
