@djconnel - The Bura SL geometry and sizing will be the same as the NeilPryde Alize and Diablo. Not sure if you were meaning the NeilPryde or the Guru ... but just in case!

Thanks! Yes -- the Guru geometry is custom, of course...

Here it is:

The "small" is more like "medium" in some other brands. But the geometry looks good: no slacker head tubes, and HTL isn't too large.

Hmm, I'd have to run a 70mm stem to get the correct saddle to bar distance on a small.

Odd when the best stack/reach (calculated) results in a top-tube that is 15mm longer than what I'm riding right now, which is also a perfect fit. Yet what I'm riding right now puts me on a relatively short stem. 15mm longer means a 15mm shorter stem normally, but those stack/reach results are relatively similar to the current calculated stack/reach? :noidea:

Only 5mm difference in reach but a massive 30mm in stack.

They definitely had one there, it wasn't the minimalist paint scheme though, so it looked pretty similar to the Praemio-R they had in front of it. They've definitely come in heavier than the ~750g they quote, the last two we got (both around 55x52cm) were 830g and 832g with hardware (in the minimalist paint scheme).



can´t se what a frame that you think looks alitle bit like Bura SL comes in a little bit heavier then the manufacture specs, have to do with Bura SL. just because one manufacture can´t reach promised weight, it does´t mean that other can´t.

I don't get it. I'm actually impressed with the (potential) weight but that frame has enough ugly built into it for 50 bikes. Perhaps it's just me. :noidea:

Thinking of buying the Neil Pryde Bura SL so looking for a bit of feedback. Any owners of the bike on this forum? If so how do you rate the Bura SL?

It's not sub 750. My small (non di2) came in around 768-9. Still, it's an awesome frame. I've had mine since late feb and I don't have any complaints.
