Please shoot me an email for any paint related enquiries, PM's via the forum will probably go un-noticed.

    Does this mean I got the last of the BMC’s sans bento bag attachment bullshit?

    Also,

    Enigma: If I had £1 for every horror story I've heard about Enigma, I'd have almost enough for a Set Menu for One from the Chinese round the corner, with extra prawn toast. I've never dealt with them personally though, so this is nothing more than hearsay to be totally fair.

    Rusby: Jake decided to stop framebuilding over a year ago for various reasons. He’s now working in the engineering faculty at UWE.

    Stopped seeing the customer/OP as a person of sane mind when I read the bit about a titanium fork.

    Speak to the framebuilder direct to come to a mutual agreement. Dont really see how having a bit of a whinge on the internet will benefit the situation for either of you TBH.

    Still got the Small frameset of this pair available, the Large sold a while back - it's just been on dispaly at the studio since first post, so still in new and unused condition.

    I've just taken it down to make space for some new display frames so it's now just sitting in a box in the storage room.

    Would love to see it go to a good home, so price now dropped to £750 ONO.

    Shoot me an email if you want to give it a home - happy to chat on price, and am also happy to do a hefty discount on any Cinelli/3T/Enve/Deda finishing kit or other parts required to sweeten the deal.

    Cheers!

    I've been riding 140mm rotors front and rear for the last 18 months and not had any issues, including lots of descending in the Dolomites and the Brecon Beacons.

    I don’t work for Isen, so can’t comment. Different people approach the paint process in different ways. I’ve said all I can from a third party point of view, so i’ll leave it at that. I think you’ve aired your grievances publicly pretty thoroughly though, which Is something you’re totally entitled to do (being the internet and all), but I don’t really see what dragging the issue out on this thread any further than what’s already been said is going to achieve to be fair.

    I’m sure you will have spoken to Matt/Caren at Isen directly about this, so not sure what continuing to bring the issue up on here will achieve other than borderline trolling to be totally honest with you.

    Paint gets chipped. It’s just a fact of life. Sorry if I’m being a bit blunt, I’m just stating my opinion as a third party.
