I just came across this bike today- It looks like it might be a nice bike for occasional off-road.
They say it has 3mm lower bb, 13mm longer stays, 2cm longer front center, and will take up to a 32mm tire- But I can't find the complete geometry sheet.
Does anyone have this info?

It would be interesting to see the gap between the stays. I have a Felt F1 (2013) and you could run those Challenge PR tires on it with a narrow rim but with a wide rim they swell out to 30mm and then don't fit.

Stack/reach ratio on the 58 cm (what Tour would typically test) is 1.45. In contrast, the Cervelo R-series is 1.49. So this may not be as aggressive F1, but it's still very much a racing geometry. It looks like a nice option.

SuperDave - on the website, the 54cm geometry chart appears incorrect - the front center would calculate correctly if the wheelbase is 997mm (versus 967mm). Please confirm - thanks!

Edit: Also appears on the gravel bikes page with a different geometry chart:

What are some other options for a modern carbon bike with mid reach brakes ?
