Aindriu80,
Did you order from www.paulscycles.co.uk in the end?

I'd be interested to know what they charge to ship and what they are like to deal with.

Keep us posted...

Just to post I got the bike now around a month. I'm well chuffed with the carbon frame supersix. The delivery was pretty quick, I got it the following week I ordered it. Assembly was fine. I would recommend Westbrook for any bike orders.

The Supersix is a great bike to ride, and I put over 400km on it. I didn't know the same frame was in the 2010 tour de france and won the giro d'italia. The bike is strong responsive and generally good to cycle, got used to the saddle after a while. The only thing is my neck, it gets a bit sore. I tried to adjust the head set but messed up the Cannondale Expander Wedge KP017 it a bit.

Apart from the KP017 the only hassle I had is the pedals and clothing. I got stuff off chain reaction cycle but its a bit small and it could feel better. I am still waiting on shoes for my clip pedals, trainers aren't for racing bikes.

Its a great feeling to be cycling, the weather has turned but its

here are 5 pictures I took. I had to use and IPod touch to take the pictures so sorry about the low quality.

There is not much to get the bike up and running from the box. It was literally a matter of taking off all the wrapping then putting on the saddle, putting on the head set, putting on the front wheel then using the appropriate Allen key to tighten all of it up. It took my time but it was more interesting than anything difficult.

The only thing I noticed about the bike was a red paint mark (in the fifth picture) on the front fork. The camera doesn't really pick it up well but I was surprised when it didn't come off. I didn't complain but I'm not sure what you can do with it.
