Has anyone seen any frameset deals lately?

    A colleague of mine asked where he could sell a groupset quickly (+cheaply) as he was upgrading to Di2 - well that groupset is now in the boot of my car.

    Has anyone seen any deals lately on a frame? It is for a GRX 810 disc groupset so possibly something all road, gravel or aimed at being a winter bike.

    Not sure of budget but unless I go for titanium I definitely wouldn't go above 1000. Will consider anything though as may not even keep this bike, it is more a project to keep me busy for a few weeks.

    I've already found some bargains over the past few years e.g. a CAAD12 for 550, a Genesis CdF 853 for 800, and most recently a Genesis Equilibrium for 350 (no idea how). All new from bike shops.

    I have the feeling that since covid and especially Brexit, such deals are almost impossible to find.

    (I live abroad so can't consider any offers unfortunately)

    The only thing I have come up with so far (aside from some good Surly deals on German sites which don't interest me as I still have a CdF) is a Carbonda frame direct from the manufacturer. Comes to about 700 all-in including taxes and delivery.

    Does anyone have experience of them? Reviews seem good elsewhere. I know that you can basically discount any warranty

    Think you said you were in Netherlands?

    Salden bikes often has good priced frames.

    Thanks - had forgotten about them. That Massini actually looks like it could even be the same Carbonda I was looking at.

    I didn't manage to find anything interesting though so I'm going to hold off and gradually pick up bits for an Ultegra 12-speed build in the autumn.

    So still looking for a frameset deal if anyone spots anything - saw a friend's Cinelli Nemo Tig the other day and it looked great.

    Bumping an old thread as I could do with a project for the Christmas holidays and I've a box of parts sitting in the garage. Anyone spot any good deals on an all road / winter / gravel frameset recently? Ideally steel or carbon, disc brakes. Buying online only and definitely sub 1000€
