Does anyone know here have any info on this frame (pic no.7 grey 695)?

The frame appears to have some aero styling and an integrated front brake in the forks with
a Trek Madone style rear brake! :noidea:

It is a prototype, called the 695 Aero. This webpage says they will release them soon in limited quantities:

weird - they go to the trouble of burying the brakes, then don't use anything approaching an aero tube cross section, and the stem/steerer looks like it's nearly 1.5 inches around.

Maybe they figured if wheels are faster when wider, what about stems? :-):-)

perhaps this is like the new Madone? making a "nice riding" bike as aero as possible?
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)

Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

I would not source aero styling and integrated brakes to the lately Trek Madone series. :smartass:
They were a number of manufacturers before Trek applying aero concepts and logically integrated brakes.
Cervelo ,THM Carbones and Ridley are just a few I remember.

I like the look of the frame but the intergrated brake looks like a dust/dirt trap. It will be interesting to see the new frame weight and ridity compared to the current 695?
