Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Fairdale Rockitship - quality steel frame and Enve carbon fork for $700

https://shop.fairdalebikes.com/produ...e-fork-kit#buy

I hadnt been to the fairdale site for a year or more- it seems they basically gave up trying to be a drop bar bike company and so there wasnt much reason to visit.
Anyways- the rockitship framesets are $700 in remaining sizes. This is for the frame, fork, and headset.
The fork retails for $540, for what its worth.

42mm tire clearance
12mm thru axle front and rear
threaded BB
3 bottle mounts

Remaining sizes- 52cm chocolate, 54cm chocolate, 56cm chocolate,and 56cm black

Pretty solid frameset to build off of for $700.

I am always baffled when a company uses a post mount fork but then decides to put flat mount on the frame. Wth is the point of that? Just make the frame post mount as well. Either go full post/post or flat/flat, don't mix them up.

Totally absurd place for the chart- buried in the 14th or whatever pic.

I know if i designed a website it would be a mess, but I have to believe it would be easier to navigate than many I look at.

Ha, I often think the same thing. I'm 100% sure I could do better than bikesdirect.com.
