Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great value and versatile frame you can build into a trainer, racer, commuter or audax / sportive bike depending on your choice of components. Room for 28mm tyres and full guards with space to spare but a laterally stiff back end means you're not wasting power when you put some effort in. Requires long drop brakes which means a limited choice but isn't a big problem.
The frame is relatively long and low creating a race bike position so bear that in mind when you size a frame. I'm 5'10" and the 54cm is spot on with a 100m stem and compact drops. It's nicely finished with a good paint job but you might want to chase the BB threads and polish the inside of the seat tube - can't have everything at this price I guess.
Overall, very pleased with this frame, built into a nice bike that will see me right for many years.
