The frame weight is for a bare frame. So what does that mean? Is the frame naked carbon with a gloss? So I wonder how close the real weights will be. But this is a great deal of a bike.


I was lucky enough to build 2 of these up for one of their testers and a size 52 with hanger, seat clamp etc was 780grams! It was LIGHT!!!

Wow sersiouly? Production version frame? Anything else you have to add? When are these reviews going to come out?

So what is the main benefit of a carbon sleeve? Just drops weight?

Does look top notch though.

@ mythical, is that the new F1 I assume? Awesome visual example of how the "Inside Out moulding process" really turns out. The quality looks exceptional!

I wonder how much that piece of shell weighs. Let's hope that's not like @johanfl mentioned about the weight of just that part of the frame, coz with the other half that means double and that's not even counting the rear end!

It's said the frame of this beauty weighs about 792g.

For some reason I doubt the F1 frameset will be only $2800. Maybe the F2? I think they will price this a bit higher, 3200-3500. Just can't see them letting it go for $2800. They want to start playing with the big boys and will probably price it that way.

I would love to have the F1. Unfortunately even at the deals I get it will be too expensive for my blood right now. The F3 or F4 are great alternatives; basically the same new bike but a 100grams or so heavier. The paint scheme on the new F3 matches my shop kits. :mrgreen:

Does anyone have info on the 2011 AR's?

I'm particularly interested in AR3, trying to determine whether it's worth the wait for '11 model. I have an idea what the component upgrades will be, but wondering if price (in Aus) is expected to be similar to '10 or higher? Also haven't been able to determine whether the frame composition is the same or has been improved upon. Also curious if weight has come down any.

Thanks
