I'm on the hunt for a new frame as I've cracked my Hi-mod Evo  2 a could repair but by the time I've repaired and repainted I will be into £400 on something I won't 100% trust.

So as I'm not as flush as I once was I have a reasonable budget of up to £1k for a frame ( I understand that's a lot for many). Has to be carbon and 'race' geometry. Rim preferable as I have all the bits but potentially disc as I have an Ultegra disc bike I could downgrade to 105 with a bit of man math.

I've done a lot of looking but nothing grabs me! My other option is to wait it out and see how low the 2018-19 Evo frames go as the new bikes are out.

Anyone seen any bargins?

No new frame bargains to report (sorry), but you may be better off getting a deal on a bike and selling the wheels, groupset and finishing kit as-new on eBay.  I recently paid a couple of grand for a Cervelo S3 and by the time I'd offloaded all the bits I didn't need (including my old Cervelo R5 frame), it ended up costing just over £500.  Obviously, your cracked 'dale won't be worth as much as my not-cracked (but still pretty biffed-up) frame, but it will be worth something... if you can be arsed with both the disassembly and the selling.

Oh my! don't know much about Bianchi range other than the history. Looks like I might need to do some research I work with a guy who's a fanatic and has about 10 of them. Nice find.
