The öde Cycles brand name was something I've thought about for a while. öde in German essentially means empty or desolate or deserted. Of course Anonymous is nameless. So it's the bike without a name...but has a name. Paint is B.O.B. Gloss on Flat. They did a really nice job with it. Top of top tube is gloss. Inside of fork and rear triangle is gloss. Logos are gloss with exception of stripes on downtube and 'cycles'. Direct mount rear brake was a bit of pain with the power meter since it would just brush the Stages power unit on the crank arm. I ended up modifying the brake just slightly (removing a bit of material on brake) and it works perfect now.
Bar is really quite good. That particular design does flex a bit given the flat tops, but in terms of this particular bar compared to a 3T version, I couldn't tell a noticeable difference. Stem however, I'm curious on. It seems a bit soft in torsional flex. I'm going to swap back to a Pro alloy stem and just feel if there is a significant difference. If so, I may just go back to a tried and true alloy one.
In regards to the frame itself, I've been happy with it. The down tube is very narrow and the bike is quite slippery in the wind and also has the look. As far as I can see, it has similar rear design as a canyon aeroad but with a onda style fork. I inspected it very close and really couldn't find any flaws. Overall, I was quite impressed given the price.
