My teammate has one of these frames in a medium on order that is yet to be delivered. Amazingly, we ride the same size, seat height and pedals.
From the specs, I consider this frame a worthy upgrade to my Addict. I'll be test riding and possibly upgrading later this year.
It's nice to see some real world weights for a production version.

Great first post, kind sir.

Nice weights... I have to admit that I am drawn to Neil Pryde frames... despite the prices. :shock:

I went from a scott addict sl to the bura sl. The bura is a much more stable bike, the addict always felt twitchy. Wasn't a problem when I was riding it, but now that I'm on the bura I can see/feel the difference.
Speedplay is the devil!

Nice post! I'd submit to listings.

On geometry, here's Addict versus Bora SL. Addict had slack head tubes in small sizes, but leveled out just over 73 deg. But the NeilPryde is very similar, although there's fewer available sizes. What sizes did you compare?

One issue is NeilPryde has more BB drop, which means if you match BB-to-seat and HTL, you get less handlebar drop, which can feel better (in the days of parallel top tube this didn't happen, since more BB drop automatically shortened the head tube). How did you match fits? In theory BB drop improves handling, in this case shifting center-of-mass (of body) 8 mm lower. Whether this is noticeable is controversial, but I believe every bit helps, so since I ride short cranks (170) and use pedals with low stack (Speedplay) I don't worry about scraping pedals in corners.

I get nothing but drooling stares at my NeilPryde. I have the Alize but the Bura SL is on another level. I live in such a flat area that I went with the aero alize. The ride is incredible and the frame is light for an aero frame. My Large Alize is 1080g with hanger and bolts/seatclamp. Fork was 340g.

I saw 2013 new alize and feel little more better than former alize. It feels much stronger than before. tubing shape has changed.

Yeah the 2013 is a nice upgrade. Better cable routing that is electronic compatible. The PF30 bb is nice too. I got a great deal on the frame so I had no option but to buy it.
