    Cheaper from Slane. Geometry chart is hard to track down. Don't really see the point of a sportive geometry frame for a pure race bike, but it is pretty.

    Cinelli site says:

    Weight (frame/fork): 3.15lb/.88lb (1430g/490g) - size medium. Does not compute. .88lb is more like 400g.

    Still, not bad for sub-€600.

    edit: this Scott is about 500g lighter, and almost within budget. Light, pretty, cheap: pick two.

    There's a group buy on Pedal force for their new frame. Looks tempting $549 + $130 (frame) + $56 (shipping) + customs = €540 + customs. However it's a new frame with no reviews and the bottom bracket is a BB30 which would require SRAM Force. ummm.

    There are two other frames on Ebay UK which look interesting. One and two. Another boardsie is building a frame with one, but I'd must mail the seller to get the geometry. The 52 might be too big. I wouldn't want anything bigger than my current bike

    I also had a rush of common sense and am also now considering getting the groupset first and putting that on my Trek first and buying the frame a month or two down the line if I still think I deserve a new frame

    Looks great, nice clean design.

    Are you sure about that?
