We have no idea how small a size S is, but Nils said that they will announce weights and stiffness numbers for all sizes "shortly"(my translation).

Should be interesting.

I like the early warning so that I can start saving my lunch money, but weight speculation of a given size/geo with or without RD hanger and so on is pointless. :smartass:

My money is on 647g for a 54 horizontal TT. :mrgreen:

Allright! It is real guys. I've seen the Proto pics and it looks great! I really think that AX can live up to their claim.

Between giving 8000euros for the Cervelo California or 3900euros for this one I wonder where most will put their savings :) Im feeling tempted!

I've been waiting for this kind of development, ever since I started checking out those crazy light German frames.

Since Nils provided the pic I hope it's okay.

and I hope the pic isn't too large?

I'm agnostic on that fork: it looks like a wind bucket. But maybe not. In other regards, it looks very promising!

added That image is my new desktop (bumping Guru Photon).

I'm not worried about stiffness as much as practical function.

That said, we now have to define the word "production" so we can start to call a winner in the "production" weight class. I'm siting hear thumping my brain trying to figure out if there is a frame sold that isn't "produced".
