Default Pedal Force Group Buy

I've had my Pedal Force RS2 frame for 3 years and its been a great frame and customer support is #1 even years after you buy it.

For those interested Pedal Force is having a group buy sale on frame, groupset and wheels

My own review on the frame and bike http://www.jtgraphics.net/pedal_force_rs2.htm

FYI aliexpress.com has no name and name brand knock offs and many more carbon frames for half that price. My friends have ordered 5 knock off Dogma 2's. And I build a fair bit of carbon wheels from ali for people. I doubt I would ever pay retail for carbon again.

Yes I am very aware of Aliexpress amd Alibaba as I buy from direct from China manufactures all the time for work.
But I mention Pedal Force because from first hand experence with them and knowing the customer service they have I can vouch for them 100%. If the get the 20 buyers $550 is a great deal
They are replacing a frame for me right now which is 3 years old when they really did not need to!.
The frames are also built to thier specs and are set to a hi degree of craftsmen ship.
While frames come out of factories from overseas not all are built to the quality thats were the real cost is. The RS2 frame is actually an '06 Wilier Izoard. Made at the same factory (ADK in Taiwan), same carbon layup schedule, same materials, same 3k weave and same geometry this I was told by a builder. They changed the frame specifications slightly on '07+ frames.
The Fondriest RP3 is the same frame i also with the same specs in either case the frame rides and is every bit as good as any in my opnion.

Thought I'd post some photos of this frame that they sent me as a replacement on my 3 year old frame that customer service offered to send me free which I really wasn't expecting this is from the current shipment that is in the group buy and Pedal Force Customer Service is great buy the way they actually help you!
