Does anyone know here have any info on this frame (pic no.7 grey 695)?

http://www.starbike.com/toolbox/en/eurobike/2012/look/

The frame appears to have some aero styling and an integrated front brake in the forks with
a Trek Madone style rear brake! :noidea:

It is a prototype, called the 695 Aero. This webpage says they will release them soon in limited quantities:

weird - they go to the trouble of burying the brakes, then don't use anything approaching an aero tube cross section, and the stem/steerer looks like it's nearly 1.5 inches around.

Maybe they figured if wheels are faster when wider, what about stems? :-):-)

perhaps this is like the new Madone? making a "nice riding" bike as aero as possible?

I would not source aero styling and integrated brakes to the lately Trek Madone series. :smartass:
They were a number of manufacturers before Trek applying aero concepts and logically integrated brakes.
Cervelo ,THM Carbones and Ridley are just a few I remember.

I like the look of the frame but the intergrated brake looks like a dust/dirt trap. It will be interesting to see the new frame weight and ridity compared to the current 695?
