The problem is not the kit you've chosen, which is fine, it's who's going to build it?

So who is going to build it?

The wheels:

Are excellent value, I know, I bought a pair last year for my Specialized Sirrus, Winter bike, they really are fantastic for the price Wink

Just noticed that you get free forks with that frame, Albina Carbon Forks as well, that really is a good offer............. Shocked Shocked Shocked
