    Hey all,

    I've been wanting to get a road bike and get into cycling for a while now, and talking to a couple of people on holiday last week who did l'etape du tour over the summer has kind of spurred me on a bit!

    Anyway, I've been doing my research and talking to as many people as possible. I want to buy 2nd hand to get a bit more for my money and went into a couple of my LBSs yesterday to see if they had anything. One of them did, and theyre offering to make up a bike for me with the following kit:

    -2nd hand 60cm Kinesis racelight frame (t04 I think it was)
    -2nd hand Carbon forks and steerer
    -Shimano Ultegra chain set (2nd hand afaik), with STI shifters
    -Tektro dual pivot brakes

    Not sure of the wheels yet, but thats all for £400... With a bit of bargaining and the offer of cash only I guess I'll be able to knock it down a little bit.

    So the question is, is this a good deal or should I be looking elsewhere? Is there anything else I should look out for?

    Any advice would be brilliant - really appreciate any help you can give!

    Cheers,

    Will

    So.. has anyone got any experience of these frames? Are custom setups usually a reliable way of getting a good deal?
