    Yes, supercycles are the main onza dealer, but also have a look a www.tartybikes.com they sell it for £280 including the internal headset which is an absolute bargin.

    The frames have Very similar geometry to the Coustellier frames, but they do infact have 5mm shorter chainstays, i have heard nothing but praise for these frames

    Cheers Ads :)

    The frame does indeed have 5mm shorter stays than a Coust. Its half the (UK) price, and about 1.5lbs heavier (much more dent resistant), very tough.

    The colour you have shown in the pic is one of only 4 ever made. One has been strpiied silver, the other sprayed matt black, the other was sold, and I own the other. The standard paint job is like this:

    Looks liks it'll come out to:

    £249 frame
    £30 Cane Creek Sealed Bearing Headset
    £70 5-8 day delivery, including £300 insurance (calculated from estimated weight)

    Which, at the moment, is quite high due to the exchange rate!

    Something like Tensile cranks will work out much better though, since you dont get killed on postage! We just sold a set to a guy called Craig Shipley, came to £123 including insured 2-day shipping.

    Im not sure how Bill feels about 'advertising' on the forum, but i know Tom doesnt approve over at T-F, so, if theres anything else, feel free to PM or email ([email protected]) me.

    Cheers :)

    Yep, thats right, 2616g including internal (NOT integrated) headset (approx 130g).

    The weight could easily be reduced by using thinner tubes (a la Coustellier), at no extra expense. However, Onza want something that will last for the average rider, not dent at the first sight of a wall/rail.

    PS: Rob is indeed funny :)
