I'm right between sizes with m being more on the racy side. A bit too racy for me on long rides.
So either I use quite a bit of spacers (the frame looks tiny then and I don't like the general look of it) or i go up one size and have the desired bar hight without spacers under the stem. Win win

Quick question: the rxr has a reputation of being very soft in the front. Is it even softer than vxrs ulteam though?
I would be very interested in an rxr or rxrs and i would favor the rxr because I like the designes better and it has bsa bb, but the supposed lack of stiffness up front hinders me...
AnybodY have experience?

Save yourself the headache and skip the RXR.

Front end was VERY soft.

question is: even softer than a vxrs? i could live with it if it is as soft, or maybe a tad more solid than my vxrs

I think it depends on sizes. I own the RXR in size xs and while the front end can be a bit "wobbly" on descends, it is the only time "I" feel it. I think it sounds like it is far more noticeable on larger sizes from what I've read here and elsewhere.

UUUhhhhmmmmm.........I have to stare a bit longer to make up my mind if I like it or not yet. Any info on weight or what they've done to it compared to the Scylon? And is the name going to be the "Alp D'Huez"? sort of competition head to head with the new LOOK.

All I know is that this is the new Altitude (read climbing) frame. So lighter than Scylon for sure and hopefully still 100% handmade in France.
I like it but not at this color.
