On the new frames coming out where the seatpost is just the seat tube extended, I am curious as to how one would go about shipping the bike. Do you think that "bike case" manufacturers are going to make case-specific models?

No, you just put it on the team truck!

The stem is an "Oval Concepts" aluminium one.

Mile ditch - I think PsyDoc was after a helpful answer.

Yes, I think manufacturers will make specific one's - Especially once large brands release these to the public!

I'll be surprised if this whole idea catches on, to be honest. I think you'll see the extended seat tube for a couple of years at the most, then it'll fade away so when you see one in 5 years you'll laugh and say "remember those"

And those unfortunate enough to have one will have trouble selling them on, as the only interested buyers will be slightly taller than you!

Maybe I'm wrong :?
