And what does the 'UD' stand for in the name of the frame? Does it stand for: 'Just painted with matte black paint'?

Looks like he said "she's out of commission"

Meaning the bike / frame Is unable to be used !



Yep exactly! Thanks for the clarification.

Lol that's what I thought. After doing some research, the UD stands for Unidirectional which is directed towards the carbon layup. It's basically similar to the prior 586 models in terms of lightness however UD carbon is a bit cheaper and offers a bit more compliance than other carbon

Didn't see this response..sorry. There's not much to miss in comparing a BH ultralight to a 586. I'm not sure what type of riding you do, but if you do race, you made the right decision :beerchug:
