Thought I'd start this off with the photo's that the nice people at Calfee sent me of my new frame. Weight (med/555 top tube) is 890grs, which includes the headset. Apologizes for the crappy pics.

What forks are you going to use?
Are you doing a mech or electric build?

Very nice :thumbup:

Hello Xena,

It will have the matching 3T Rigida LTD fork, AX Morpheus crank, and Di2 9070.

Cheers, Pete

That will be very nice. Not a fan of non mech but it will be a very classy bike. :thumbup:

Hello,

The frame can be either Di2 or mechanical. I had the cable guides on the downtube removed by Calfee for a cleaner look. I believe the frame is available from R2 bike.

From Nils in regards to the two framesets...

We are currently really working hard to get the Vial EVO right, which of course is not say that your Vial would be any "worse" though: Actually it is the more exclusive frame by quite a bit (also much more elaborate to produce, hence the higher price). Technically they are pretty much on par (except for the Evo obviously being a bit lighter

I hope this answered your questions.

Cheers,

Pete

Hi Pete,

Can you show us the final built of the frame. Also I'm assuming that you have a few thousands of miles in it, how is the non detachable rear deraillure hanger holding up? I have read that they have been having problems of it being so soft they are bending inward due to the shifting of the rear deraillure and since this is the case at some point that hanger will come off the frame, because of the bike mechanic realigning it every time.
