I sold my QR 53cm Tequilo 650c and am looking for another TT bike, I don't really want Aluminum. So far the choices are:
new 07 Kuota K force $2099 Shimano 105 10sp Fulcrum
new 06 Scott Plasma Team $2095 105 10sp Mavic Equipe
used 06 Serotta CXII Frameset, carbon bars $1275
new 05 Litespeed Tachyon 105 9sp FSA rd80 $1849
I am open to ANY suggestions, I am looking at size small
I bought an RS from Pedal Force and could not be happier. It allowed me to buy good frame with great components. If 30 people sign up the price for the frame is $500. Then you can add top of line components from Pedal Force at great prices
I won a race this year on a frame similar to the Tachyon(except made of steel instead of Ti) and 9 speed 105/ultegra. Must be okay stuff?
The Kforce and plasma have wayyyyy different geometry than what you are on now. I don't know how the Tequilo fits but how it did fit would be indicative of your choice. If you had a whole slew of spacers and the seat ind of far back, the K Factor would be a good choice. If you had the seat ind of far back but with just a little bit of spacers or none, then the Plasma is probably a good choice.
The Tachyon is probably the most similar in Seat Angle and head tube length to what you're currently riding.
