shorter cycles have made me this offer for my 1200:
shorter easton frame
ultegra gruppo
training wheels from vuelta (i have xero xcr1s for racing already)
itm carbon post and bars ( i want flat topped bars!)
saddle is a san marco i think ( iwant to get a spesh or fizik really)
well what do you think?

other options for the are felt f65 and a little more for a ridley boreas with a 105/ultegra mix up.

this is for racing a tall rider at 190cm but not too heavy.

i know the geometry is right on the felt/ridley as i asked the guy who fitted my old bike i think the shorter is a similair geometry.

Justin Hoy (juzyhoy on here I think) might be able to do you a good deal on a Felt as he has contacts.

the ridley does give a good ride stiff and responsive.
