Cool. Although anyone who wants me to buy a bike sight unseen and doesn't provide stack and reach should be flogged. I know it can be calculated, but I'm a lazy American who doesn't believe in science.
I love my Six13 but this is a pretty good budget option should something go wrong...
The LeChampion was well reviewed so I decided it was worth the small premium over [aesthetically] similarly Chinese frames on ebay. It's not very light for a CF; I believe my 58cm was 2lbs 12oz, but that is perfectly fine by me -- it's still a ~16.5lb build, and I suspect that is not what's holding me back
Nashbar has an arguably better-deal carbon road frame option too: http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product...2_543482_-1___
(And today it would be 20% off.)
That is probably a better deal since the included fork is full carbon -- and the tapered steerer is probably the way to go
My next road frame will be a disc frame. After riding carbon wheels for a week or so, I've learned [what everyone already knew] that a carbon braking surface is a horrible idea.
