Awesome photos on the website, and awesome bike.

Could you tell more about the frame? I'm going to buy a razorblade, and I'd like to know more about cable routing and other details on the frame.

Cheers!

Thank you all!

The Razor Blade and the Cirex have a relatively short top tube. Therefore I took the frame in XL. Simplon builds very good frames. The frame has all modern features, such as fully internal cable routing (shift & brake) , X12 Rearaxle, direct mount front derailleur, etc.
The shift/brake cable can be laid very nicely. The rear shift cable is completely in house and there is a service opening to reach the cables easily.

Here are some pics

I took the liberty and saw those pictures already :D

I'm short so I'll buy the frame in the smallest size (M).

I'm going to use xx1, and I found on a german forum that the 156 q-factor works, that was the main doubt on the frame.

Haven't you thought on changing the original cradle from your seatpost? For a smud or a carbon cycles one?

You have a nice set of bikes, and a nice "stable", good taste.

Like!

Especially the amount of room in the front triangle. Side loader cages down low, with cramped fitment to get the bottle in around the shock drive me nuts.

I much prefer to do short course racing without a camelbak.
