I was going to buy this frame, but the lack of brakes put me off, so i bought the time trial one. Very happy with it....

I bought mine and got a fork drilled for a brake. Except for athstetics it really doesn't make sense to run without brakes.

Yeah, it was a real delight to build. The frame color was the only available at the moment, I don't know why this color isn't more popular on this frame.
