Very nice Karl! I was really hoping to try this one out, but didn't have a carbon bike to trade at the time! That frameset looks amazing!

The tease is part of the fun

Plus, he's gotta get it delivered and built first...

Thanks for that link - I wasn't around when he posted that.

What are you going to build it up with?

I have Campy Record 11 I'm holding in White and Red, so likely one of those.

This fame looks so cool I feel like it deserves less cables, so EPS, ETap or Di2 would be nice also.

Hey I've ridden that bike, it is quite a bike. Are you buying it complete or just the frameset?

When you say THAT bike, do you mean this very bike, if so do tell they story behind that and your thoughts on it.

Im getting just the frame set.

Thx

I do mean that exact bike, Matt let me borrow it for a couple months after I spent some time at his house and dropped off his wife's frame. I rode it as Matt had it built up, we ride the same size bike. The frame rode well, nice and stiff but not punishingly so. The build was really light and I think that is where I would fault my experience on it. It felt as though I had to work really hard to keep the bike at speed, there wasn't a lot of momentum being built up between the 130lbs me and the 14lbs bike. I feel more comfortable on bikes in the 18-20lbs range. With that said climbing and accelerating on that where new experiences, that is where this bike triumphed in my experience. With all that said I was tempted to throw Matt an offer on the frame/fork.
