    Cause if it has been, our goal difference looks a bit surprising.

    Thanks for agreeing to change the format of the tables

    Slightly overpriced but then so is tons of entry level stuff. it was worth paying for the people I know who have bought foffas as they got a lot of joy out of them. It's a decent entry level brand that doesn't deserve this opprobrium.

    Not really. Remove your head out of your arse for half a second emyr.

    tl:Dr of this thread is, if you are after a starter bike to get into cycling then foffa is one of many similar, standard options. While a bit overpriced, they look ok and would be a decent way to get into cycling if you don't know anything about bikes. If you want a de Rosa, then this isn't the brand for you

    Fucking pathetic. This forum genuinely has gone from being a bunch of people who just offered good advice to others about bikes to an online wank fest of self important tossers with an unimaginably high regard for their own lack of knowledge about bikes, leading to behaviour such as actively trying to ruin a guy's start up business. The accusation that he comes across as a bit of a dickhead on the internet is equally applicable to the lot of you.

    While this forum has enriched my life considerably and I've met many awesome friends through it, this kind of thing is the ugly side where knobheads spend time trying to justify their futile existence by slagging off a small business and think they have the right to do so because they know the difference between different years of dura ace. Delete this nasty shite and be done with.

    Load of shite tester, your normal good sense deserts you on this one. Why do you or this forum demand that a company make a wonderful contribution to cycling? In my book foffa is ok. I know people who have bought foffas, ridden them to work for a summer, loved it, carried on through the winter and then started getting more into bikes etc. Thats a decent contribution to cycling although they still don't know their shimano from their campag. Foffa was a crap startup that sorted its shit out and then made standard entry level bikes that with a bit of marketing (like all brands) claims to be a bit better than it actually is. The guy was a start up bike company for new entry level cyclists that has sold perfectly decent bikes for a few years now.

    He is not specialized who are big enough to suck up any shit thrown their way but this thread is the domain of bullies and I don't fucking like bullies so stop it.
