Crabon frame with 5 year warranty, decent hardware, £999. I thought about full suzz but everything seems to be uphill where I ride... :)

I'll let you know how it handles when I've got the Bonty built (for comparison).

Looks a bit like Canondale Flash inspired with the design and graphics. Nice looking light frame and whole bike for under a grand seems pretty good. Let us know how it goes. :)

Sell those at decathlon round the corner from me. Very light, nice looking bit of kit. Frame sound like plastic when you tap it, prolly just me but i prefer a bit of metal to ride.

If you pedal too hard it goes sideways.

Crabon is a slightly lighter material than allegeranium but it only has half the strength to weight ratio of megakneesium. :lol:
