Winspace by Jedi Cycle Sport (http://jedicyclesport.co.uk) - any thoughts?

I had an eBay accident yesterday and ended up with a very cheap TT bike. F&F is Winspace, full ultegra groupset and cockpit is ITM. No wheels but won't buy chinabombs for that.

So lay it out to me, how bad is it then? Smile

It's fairly snazzy looking though - pics from ebay here and here. And considering PX is a china import as well not sure how much bike envy I'd have to take notice of sneering. Smile

Can't find the exact model number but it's not a T800. Probably a tad older.

Well, I did start looking at china import TT frames with thru axle and disc brakes but it seems they haven't managed to steal the molds for those yet. Would have been nice to just use same wheels between road and TT.

Had a quick look at it last night, it's in a very good nick. And F&F/cockpit/full 11sp Ultegra for 500 quid - can't be that bad, can it? (Until it has a catastrophic frame failure of course)

That was 500 quid?! Did you meet the seller at a supermarket car park?

Nope. The guy got unlucky with global warming. Bidding end time Sunday afternoon which happened to be the first day with great weather and not a single soul looking at eBay. Put a pop-shot on it and accidentally won it.

Turns out I might even know the guy through a friend. It's legit.
