    Large Carbon Frame??

    Hi i'm looking for a new carbon frame but it needs to be big as im 6ft 4. I had one on order but the shop messed up so i've got to start looking again. Only problem is i'm having immense problems trying to find a right size frame and to make things more tricky im looking for a shop that offers 0% finance or close (i'm a student so can't afford a 'one off' lump sum) if anyone could help I would really appreciate it. Also i'm in the UK.

    thanks,

    Don't know about the UK, but in the US there is no such thing as 0%, or any % for that matter, bicycle financing.

    Save your pennies and check out this thread. Ordering for abroad will most certainly be your least expensive option. Also check out some of the German web shops, they often have very good prices.

    Actually, Wells Fargo and American General offer 90 day or 1 year zero interest, depending on how it is set up with the shop. I had one or the other at each of the shops where I worked.

    Condor cycles - they have their own brand carbon frames, specialized and various others.

    They're quite possibly the best bike shop in London and can do a full custom frame in either titanium, steel or aluminium should you want that.

    Here's just one of their carbon frames - http://www.condorcycles.com/diamante.html

    More here - http://www.condorcycles.com/road.html

    Contact details - http://www.condorcycles.com/store.html

    Here's my custom aluminium

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    check Cannondale - they make some XL MTB frames that would suit - I'm sure they have the road equivalent.
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.
