red and white carbon frame

Postby radiation man » Sun Jan 20, 2013 12:09 pm

anyone know where i can buy a carbon frame in red and white so i can build it up to my spec, i have seen a planet x rt57 but the red is a lot darker then the picture on the site shows.

UK builder Mekk offer their Poggio 2G as a complete bike but may be willing to sell you a frameset.

Red and white but also with a fair bit of black too. Not sure if the black is a deal breaker

How about a Trigon RQC29 from Cycledivision
Here's mine and a few others

Cracking bike, albeit a tad too big for me in a 55 (sloping tube)
They have an excellent deal going for the blue and white equivalent.
Thinking of going for the smaller frame and transferring the parts over

You're buying a frame based purely on colour? You do realise that the frame is the most important part of the bike...

Weight isn't the issue. Ride, geometry, quality are.

Not sure if it's the after effects of last night's alcohol abuse playing havoc with my eyes, but that looks like it was designed by Escher. Can't work out if it's facing towards or away from me. :?

I think I'm going to have a lie down now...

It's a TT bike - not much point making the frame look nice when you put all that TT bike shenanigans onto it! This pic might help you work out which end is the front but don't look at the rear wheels in your current state of Escher induced dizziness :lol:

I thought of that bike straight away, yes one of these. Nice. Although you could buy a cheap alu frame of e bay for £50 and then spend some dosh on a custom paint job, if the colour is the main thing?

On a similar topic; Anyone know of a good blue car made from metal? I've got a bit of carpet left over that would set it off really nicely.
