Anyone else checked the sizing info? The stock sizes are rather funny. Way short head tube for frame size.

they also make custom :roll: for alot more money :evil:

here is part of an email they sent me back.

"The intro frame is an handmade carbon-frame, the cost for a custom-made frame is 4980 € (6100 USD) and for a standard frame (53,56 or 59 cm) 3680 € (4520 USD). The BB stiffness is over 100 Nm/°, our stiffest frame (lateral stiffness) is 114 Nm/°"

Yeah, I saw that. So they figure let's make some really freaky stock sizes that fit no one for cheap. Then everyone who doesn't have gorilla length arms and doesn't want a ton of spacers will have top get a custom build.

The price makes no sense for US buyers- hell you can get a custom sized C-50 for half that price.......and if a Scott fits you for a third of the price.
