So what reasons will Lightweight give consumers for why they should buy their frame? Because of low weight? Nope, not even close to the leaders in the field. They are several years (5-6 years) behind on this front. Because of superior ride characteristics? Doubtful this will ride so much better than any of the other top frames in the market? Because of being handmade in Germany? Nope, made in Asia. Because of the great value to performance of the frame? Nope, seems they have priced themselves out of the WW market with a subpar frame weight wise and charging $$$ for it. At this price, I would rather go with a AX-Lightness, Storck or even Canyon if I wanted a "German" frame.
Just about anyone can do sub 800g frames nowadays. The new thing is sub 700g and it appears LW can't do that. Time to move on, nothing to see here. LW is of a bygone era.
Are you in the market for a "sportive" frame and do you have deep pockets? If not look elsewhere....
From what I gathered so far CS enters the frame building world with what sounds like an upmarket design targeted at the well-off amateur looking for a comfortable long distance frame with little or no aspirations for battling.
In that context it does not need to be all that light, it needs to be comfortable in the long run.
IOW, it's a bit early days to judge and dismiss something just because on the surface it does not seem to fit into the frame (sic) set of a pure sang race rig and as such it looks disappointing to the hard core race oriented WW.
Could be wrong. It's anybody's guess at this point in time.
