RS3-ISP Frameset $499.00

Now that I've had the frame/fork for a few years and have put some miles on it, I'll do a review. The only major issues I've had are with rear derailleur alignment and shifting. Other than that (and not coming with any downtube barrel adjusters), it's been great. If you live in a good area with clean roads and can run some Vittoria Open Corsa CX 320TPI tires and latex tubes, the ride on this bike is simply amazing. I built the frame/fork up with SRAM Rival (went with a Force 50/36 compact crankset), Thomson stem, Deda Newton bars, Easton EA90-SL wheels, Specialized Toupe Pro seat, Look Keo Classic pedals and a Tune seatmast topper with 0 degrees of setback. Weighs in at around 15.5 lbs with the Vittoria's on it, although I run Bontrager AW3 tires these days (which ride like a truck) to keep the flats down to almost non-existent. It's an all around nice looking, nice riding, nice handling bike. I would go this route again if I had to build another bike - I just wish the top tube was about a centimeter shorter for the 50cm version (the 50cm frame has a 55cm top tube).
