- Road: Could Not Resist….
I had the last remaining ‘small’ in my basket since lunchtime, decided after tea to press the ‘buy’ button and the bloody thing has been sold.
bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger!bugger! 😥Posted 4 years ago
I’m sucker for an impulse ‘crikey that’s a bargin’ purchase.
I am left with a part of me hoping they counted wrong and there was one 56cm less than they thought.
I don’t really need a road bike. I want one, obviously, but that’s not quite the same is it?
 just got a despatch email. Clearly they can count.Posted 4 years ago
Frame comes with a shimano press fit BB
ooh, that’s good. Good job I didn;t buy another.
What sort of Shimano front mech will it need? I shall be transferring the 10 speed kit from my cross bike and that has a banded front mech.
I think other than road brakes I’ve got everything else I need.Posted 4 years ago
Wow great price. But by the time you’ve built it up with some half decent bits, you could have just bought a Canyon Ultimate Al fully built.
I’ve already got some half decent bits on my bike.
I reckon it’ll cost me £200-300 to upgrade after I’ve sold my old frame.Posted 4 years agoweeksySubscriber
Dunno, it’s fine for me….
The Spark 29 pro frame is VERY much catching my eye at the moment, but my plan was to buy a HT for a road/backup use, not anohter FS frame !!! but DAMN that’s very cheap.
I think i’d need to change stuff on my Pro2 hub for the rear end though as i run standard QR on it…. I also don’t know how this Remote control shifter fit would work as i have a set of Fox F29’s with hand operated lockout, i assume this remote stuff is for a specific fork type and ones with bar mounted lockout. I don’t mind not having it… but depends how it fits to the frame etc as to whether it would get in the wayPosted 4 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
You know the old in-joke about spotting a STW forumite by the Audi and the Orange 5 in the trail centre car park?
Well very soon there’s going to be fleets of high end Scott bikes on the roads and it’ll be “ah right, another STWer then”

Still debating that Foil. It’s just that buying the Premium then compels me to buy a £2500 groupset…
