This is a very light, very strong & very stiff road frame by Quest of Harrow. It comes complete with a carbon fork (uncut!) & Campagnolo Chorus headset. The tubing is light, strong & stiff SC7 butted Scandium, still the preferred choice of many top riders.
Size is 'Small' but see the diagram for more size details. The frame is in very good condition, with just one minor blemish on the top tube which you won't see when riding the bike. The frame has never been ridden – an unfinished project that I didn't complete.
A bargain at £200

I know I'll get a little stick for this, but I've just pre-ordered a Giro Air Attack Shield, and am wondering if its legal to use the visor in normal road racing. I've seen a picture of David Millar in the prototype in the Tour (http://sicycle.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/5972168304_33b32ee410_b.jpg) but can't find anything in the UCI rules that expressly forbid them (BC rules didn't have anything specific either)so if any of you know the answer it would be much appreciated.
I'm looking at Vivelo ARC RS as a possible new race bike, just wondering if anyone has any experience on it? I've read the review on here about it not being as light as described and that's putting me off slightly. However, I love the look of it and that it's different from the standard field of Trek, Giants, and Specialized.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
Switching from AL wheels to a set of Carbon tubs (with carbon braking surface) before a race.
What problems would I encounter with the braking ie. Shards of aluminium scratching up my CF.
Is it necessary to change brake pads at the same time?
If I want CF specific pads, will they wear super quickly with my training wheels?
According to L'equipe the Giro will start in Belfast in 2014!
Thank feck the Italian don't read the Irish press.
I might go to that!.

My Trek Madone 4.5 Race Bike - I have been using this bike for 2 seasons, but due to injury it has spent most of this year in my hallway. I have therefore reluctantly decided to sell it on.
