Does any one know what is so special about the Phonal team's BMC frame? I can't find any information on them (weight, strength, price, etc.). Does any one have?

I think it's about 1.300-1.400g, I saw it once in a magazine.
In this setup it weighs 7.100g http://www.bmc-racing.com/bikes.cfm?lan ... 4&modID=23
The seat and headset tube are very special

I will be riding on one next season, so I'll post a summary soon. I am expecting delivery in early January.
