The Performance Forte bikes..ClydeTri

Looking for a good basic bike for a friend of mine, he will not race or do 100 mile rides.. here is the bike being considered http://www.performancebike.com/shop/Profile.html?SKU=14922 I am guessing the frame is coming out of that huge shop in taiwan that makes frames for lots of companys, basically 105 level components with performance forte house brand items thrown in. The price is listed on sale as $949.99...taking the 20% coupon discount, then the 3% ebates discouint, final price wouild be $737 plus shipping..they are throwing in a small pack of basic tools currently also...what yall think? ( I know its not a top end Colnago, Seven, or even Litespeed, but as a basic bike?)

The guys at Performance are very positive about that bike. A couple of the employees said that is the bike they are working to buy. They can not carry it in their stores. You have to special order it, or order it online. The catch is that it must be assemebled by a Performance shop. The frame is KHS. It is the same frame as the lesser model that is in the Performance showrooms. It might be the same as the KHS 700.
looks like a decent deal to me (nm)ColnagoFE
