It will obviously always be designed within solid engineering parameters. Our 'regular' sub 700g frame (for a 56) has a 200kg rider weight limit so they are solid enough. We have picked up significant rider input and done enough semi static bench testing to verify the subjective feel to be able ro guide the customer through the 'rider tuned' process. Most people will also perfectly happy with one of the three 'standard' lay-ups in each size. Furthermore we will show up and make various lay-up test bikes available in the more obvious locations globally (Palo Alto, LA, Majorca, Paris, BeNeLux, etc.)

Hi Andy,

It is an impresive frame,love it so much,
i want to know, do you have standart frame geometry to sell that cheaper than custom?
And for the sub 600 gram frame, what is the length of the top tube frame?

Like: " -A Colnago should always have Campagnolo". Comments like that makes me furious!

hansonator69: drop dead gorgeous, but I'm torn over the stem -- consistency vs highlight :-)

Is that Ergonova handlebars?

Hi, just arrived in Baden Würtemberg for EB. The bike in Hansonstors pic will be in the 3T stand.

Revpower: You can pick a standard size frame with one of the 3 standard layups at a lower cost.

Hammertime: We are working with a German product
KRAIBON® investigating the optimum implementation in our frame. Here is a link explaing it in more detail:

Carbon drop outs

We manufacture our carbon drop outs using the same materials as the frames. The drive side drop out features an integrated derailleur hanger. By molding the drop out and hanger as one piece, we can ensure much higher stiffness, which means more accurate and consistent shifting, and increased durability. The drop outs are then bonded into the frame.
High hanger stiffness ---> good for shifting performance. But what happens if the hanger is impacted or subject to some traumatic event? What are the failure points and repair/replacement paradigms?

Its so thin, it'll snap off! If a heavy rear impact occurs, the chainstay could get damaged -as with any carbon frame but we have a repair procedure to replace the hanger or stay if needed .

In stark contrast to the bike industry crash testing is applied religiously in the automotive and aerospace industries. Our technincal director Jon Gunner has an extensive resume crashing stuff, including himself:)
