Goodbye Stupid Curves (well, there are still some left...)

Claims: Lighter, more aero, more stiff, lots of sizes, custom paint schemes... their ads is quite entertaining to read through.

- Size 54 weight 860g without paint and hardware
- 12% more stiffness
- 47% more aero
- 16% more balance (whatever that means)
- Custom color available
- Toray T1100
- Truncated tubing profile.

waiting to hear about how it rides. 120g less weight is not much at all.

I still see a little s-shape in the fork... I've never ridden one, but I always felt that squiggle in the fork/frame triangles was rediculous

Geez, was close to pulling the trigger on a 65.1. Didn't know that there was a new frame so close............. oh well may have to wait til they are available here in Oz.

No need to quote above

Now there's an idea and an excuse for a short jaunt :thumbup: I read ealier that they expect it to be available around about the same time in the UK. See they have dropped the "Paris" but have the Prince as a lower spec frame.

But would suggest you write in or call in to the relevant distributors/shops before you do!

As far as I've heard, the vast majority of the stock have already been spoken for though.

Just had an email back from the Oz distributor and stock is about 2 weeks away here as well. "Retail" is on par with current 65.1 pricing. I have no idea on what "street" price will be.

More balance is good. I hate it when I wobble. :-)

What is the basis for this supposition???? Bizarre. It's not even freely available yet.

Looks pretty good to me.

Funny, couldn't see anything in the marketing hyperbole about this being a lesser model. On the contrary it comes across as being the flagship. I suppose it is how you read it.
