I snapped these piccies this morning outside Maurice Dry Cleaners in Summerhill. Has anyone got an explanation or better yet a good story?

The Cervelo distributor's office is in the old post office in summer hill, right next to the dry cleaners. These are probably warranty frames that have been destroyed so no one can reuse them..

You do know CF frames are repairable, right? Assembly required. ;)

Wouldn't mind picking up a piece or two. Could come in handy as wall decoration.

Cut up a dead frame so it fitted in the bin I'm guessing

I think it was Geoff S who told me that he seems to have a lot of Carbon Cevelo's in the shop with damaged frames. Go the Pinnarello !!

If I was in charge of brand for Cervelo, I'd make them paint over the logo instead of neatly cutting it so the name is intact.

Yep the place is run by Ian McF, and he has been there for years. Know he is the distributor for Mongoose but did not know he handled Cervelo as well. Nice guy. Notorious too - rides everywhere.

Ah! That explains where the 2 frames my friend picked up a few years ago came from. They were near his house at Summer Hill and he grabbed them. Still sitting in his garage though...
