Different but not unsightly IMHO. I think they have an exotic boutique look and will function surprisingly well. Lets give this small shop a chance in bringing something different to the table. Having all mainstream equipment is boring.

My first thought (and it was brought up in one of the other threads...) is there's gonna be a **** ton of heel rub.

My first impression:
The front derailleur sits too high.

Looking forward to see tests. If all it takes are three carbon rods (which presumably can be produced fairly efficiently in large quantities), then everyone who has been inventing new shapes, and investing in alu forging, or CF molding, has been overengineering it.
