New frameset for£2500

Postby jimbob_1978 » Tue Sep 17, 2013 10:03 am

So my mate needs a new frameset in the region of £2500. He has been riding a 60cm Colnago C40 but it broke so time for a new one. Any ideas anyone?

Saw this yesterday

Guessing your mate had some nice kit on his Colnago so he could sell it and get the Wilier.

Has to be carbon. He's gonna strip his Dura Ace 7900 so just a frame set but the Willier is an option as he doesn't want anything too mainstream.

Won't Colnago replace it ?

Did he like the C40? What about another Colnago? Maybe something like an M10.

Absolutely, already saving for next bike, got some great (in my opinion) ideas about colour scheme.

I love the Cipollini`s and if it was me I`d probably go for one coz I`ve never seen anyone else on one and they look fantastic.
