Looks interesting for sure but still questioning the naming bikes .... especially given the demographic that will be dropping that kind of cash. Hard to see past that even with some sharp engineering.

Terrible name. Could be the best bike in the world but I wouldnt ride it because of the name.

Looks cool. Is it dimpled for aerodynamics or just effect?

Love to see them have a shot a full on aero bike. I didn't spot the price, how much is it?

Maybe shouldn't ask :x

Not good ... if you can't get your web site to work, how can you build good bikes? :p

Site works fine here...

But I thought maybe Heroïn meant something else in French - but no - it just means Heroin.

No thanks. Trust me - certain parts of town where I live I'll have junkies chasing me up and down the streets.

The site is annoying and name is even worse. Cut in the fork doesn't look good.

Horrible name....although cycling can be addicting like heroin lol

Also on the dimpling, I imagine if it was effecting more bikes would have it so just seems like a gimmick.

terrible looking bike and cold dead website. if it is the case that they are after that much money online and limited release i think they are in grave trouble. there are so many other bikes i'd rather have. one fun bright and beautiful example below (threads need photos)

interesting how vias it looks at front because of stem integration i suppose.

also interesting they think they can get away with implying thin stays and a small diameter round seat post are comfort innovations.

Can they mean "héroïne"-female of hero-)??

I find the bike to be sexy but the price is outrageous... But in Rolo, Factor ballpaks. There is an audience for this stuff.

No, just read the Cycling Weekly article BRM linked to, but the name is because it's supposedly the most addictive thing on the planet and almost impossible to give up.........idiots
