Hey WW Crew,

Alchemy Arion Aero for ya...

- Arion stock 54 frame set with ENVE tapered fork and Chris King headset
- Sram Red
- ENVE 3.4 tubulars first with Vittorias, now with FMB's
- ENVE cockpit
- Fizik Aliante saddle
- Arundel tape and cages

Came out to 14.7 with pedals and cages and my buddy Bill says he loves the ride quality coming off his Cervelo R3SL.

Beautiful bike. I would love to see that with a set of Enve 6.7's. Is the saddle pretty far forward on it's rails, or is that an optical illusion?

I love the look of this bike but they should really market this frame as a SEMI-AERO frame as they leave a lot on the table to making it a true aero frame.

yep that bike would look great w/ a set of 6.7's....

That being said, WOW! I got to monkey w/ one of those frames at the Enve office in Utah and it was very cool.

Might be an illusion, but that seatpost angle looks crazy slack.

Actually, it is a standard 73 degree seat angle.
We did bring the rider forwards quite a bit to improve his knee over pedals position.
So far, considering that he is 65 years old, he says the bike is stiff but also quite smooth coming off his R3SL.

The saddle position looks silly. Why does his knee over pedal position matter?

I think it is the angle of the photo and the seatpost itself (which just looks odd to me) that kind of throws everything out. Needs a better side on shot maybe
