So decent frame on a bike that cost £600. I'd rather that over a cheapo carbon Planet X any day, those things are horrendously wobbly and the build quality is pants compared to a decent aluminium frame.
Oh well, that's 100% at odds to my thoughts - admittedly I've not ridden a Planet X, and my Allez is only A1, but it's horrible to ride, flexy BB (not sure about front to back stiffness ) and very harsh ride quality - an impressive, if unenviable, combination!
What do you mean by the 'build quality' too? Do you literally mean how the bike is bolted together? Or are we talking frame finish or what?
