Owning two Swifts at the moment, thought I'd throw this up. Great company, doing different things, especially giving a "custom" option as a monocoque frame.

Amazing weight, and the frame is a beauty, but $7k? Dayum!

A buddy of mine designed their Ultravox. Not sure if he did this one.

Looks like this frame is made by AX. Based on that I'd rather recommend an RCA or Rolo even.

Being in engineering I love to read about people pushing the so-called boundaries of weight vs material in bicyle design. Thanks

Why would you suggest the RCA or Rolo based on the fact that its made by or in conjunction with Ax?
