I’ve been looking at buying a new frame but in the end bought a whole new road bike, a De Rosa R838 Stealth. The set up was about the same cost as the frame in the sale so it was a no brainer.
And, as I keep telling the bread knife when she asks how much it cost, as I spend next to nothing on commuting to work, it is actually saving me money. I only have one admission to make, the groupset is not Italian *ducks for cover*. The wheels are though and the stem and handle bars.
Now all we need is a summer.
