A carbon road bike for only £699.99.
Yes it's a Holdsworth frame(?) and only Tiagra but might suit some people.

The Holdsworth Trentino is proper introduction to the world of carbon road bikes, and perfect for those of you upgrading from aluminium and steel. But more importantly it's just a really solid bike for all year round, light, fast road riding.

A new Holdsworth bike comes with a high level of expectation, fortunately for us all the Trentino lives up to the billing. The geometry is compact, low and race-ready. Modern frame design features can be seen in every contour of the Trentino. Oversized chainstays, big, strong bottom bracket shell and a smooth tapered headtube.

For your shifting and stopping we're giving you a quality Shimano Tiagra groupset, bear in mind that this is Shimano quality, so a step above the rest. In recent times Tiagra has been taken apart, put back together, remodeled, re-mastered; Tiagra has had it all. What we're left with is a one of the finest mid-range groupsets money can buy. Sharp, smooth and durable; it's the perfect accompaniment to the Trentino's all rounder road appeal.

4ZA have been making components for many of the big guns in the industry for years, but recently they've stepped out from behind the curtain and shown us what they can do. The Trentino comes equipped with 4ZA Stratos bar and stem, which keeps the handling assured up front, without bringing down the overall weight. The same can be said of the Shimano R501's, a low rolling resistance wheel that's not going to break the scales either. Slightly deeper section wheels than your average alloy wheelset, the R501's add to the up-to-the-minute aspects of the Holdsworth Trentino.

Nobody else out there can offer you a full carbon road bike with high-specification for the price of the Trentino, and certainly not one bearing the name of Holdsworth.

And that Shimano guy, didn't he do the 7 Samurai?

ha ha ha

nice little bike for the price... shame (as ever) about the compact c/set, but otherwise.. hot

buy a 2nd hand motorbike for that price,, tee hee vroom

Great deal. Heat added. If it's as good as the pro-carbon I had then it's a bargain!

This seems like a lot of bike for the money too - pity they only have small in stock. You'd be hard pushed to find another full ultegra (including chainset) carbon bike for under 1k...

Seems a good deal to me!

the 105 version is really good value … the 105 version is really good value too:http://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/CBHOTR105/holdsworth-trentino-shimano-105-carbon-road-bike



I would have thought an extra £200 is not really worth it just for the difference between 105 and Tiagra (personally I'd get the Tiagra model upgrade the wheels if I had the extra £200). Also if you're looking for a small size CRC have a few Ridley models in their sale between £729 and £799 with Carbon frames and 105.
