A Emonda SLR frameset would leave a lot of money leftover for hookers and blow. If you are into that sort of thing.

Our shop got in an Emonda SLR 56cm for a customer build. So I had the frame in my hands. Light? Yes. BUT, as to be expected, the chainstays were very easy to flex in my hand, as were the seatstays and the fork. The toptube felt like a coke can. I too have had a load of bikes in my time, but when you can bend the tubes like that, to me it's telltale.

Granted this was being built and I was not able to ride it. But take your own fav frame, and grip together the dropouts (no wheel). You ought not to expect a wet noodle. So yes, I am leery, and looking forward to reading some actual (unpaid) ride reviews by someone with some wattage.


Bertie's new slr weight 6,4 kg (before the extra 400gr lead was added), and that's with heavy SRM, DA pedals, full white paint etc. So, I suspect he rides a stock frameset, and being a pro, he puts out a lot more power than 99% of us here do. So, while not the most stiff frame in absolute terms, I suspect it's more than stiff enough as long as you don't weight + 90 kg and / or are +1,90m. But I'm curious as well!

Perhaps a custom frame would be a nice choice?
But i am unsure any custom frame really will win the WW:ism battle these days, or?
