Wiggle has 40% off 2010 Ultegra 6750 groupsets (ie, $750, which is $500 off). That’s a pretty good deal – compare it with Sram Apex for $710 (from CRC), which is nice if you want the extra range of Apex, but I think most people would take Ultegra for only $40 more.
For you triathlon and time-trial people, Chain Reaction Cycles currently has Vision Carbon Fiber aerobars for $67.64 (in limited sizes and numbers). They are usually $228 so this is a pretty good deal – pretty close to 80% off!
After running this site for nearly a month it has become clear from the volume of email I’m receiving that people have a lot of questions about these bike frames, and would like a place dedicated to discussing them.
With this in mind, I’ve setup a forum. Based on the correspondence I’ve had, I’ve setup the following sub forums:
If you are looking for a good looking carbon fiber chainset to go with your new carbon fiber bike frame, then this might interest you. Chain Reaction Cycles currently has the FSA SLK Carbon Chainset MegaExo on sale for $134, which is better than I’ve seen on EBay, and cheaper than many alloy cranksets.
Forum user mcrdave posted a great teaser pic of his new FM015. I messaged him for some details and he was kind enough to share some details:
Yeah I’m a graphic designer so I knew kind of what I wanted. Bespoke, subtle but meaningful graphics. First came the name Nostrum – a secret ingredient, a favourite remedy, a cure for all ills. Sums up why I ride!
Then I designed a bespoke logo, a brand name if you like.
Then put out an email on a forum for any good vinyl cutters. Got a quick response and used a firm here in the uk who were great. I got them cut in white and clear 7 series vinyl (high quality, very thin, will last longer than most).
A week later I applied them. Am building the bike up tomorrow, am pretty excited as I can’t wait to get out there and ride it!
Please do use the pics on your site. I think it’s a great resource and I used it for my initial layouts. If you hear of anyone who wants a bespoke graphic please feel free to send them my details and I’ll see what I can do.
Nostrum bike graphics
I love the look of this – I’m hoping to see some complete bike pics!
