I am really digging this frame. What bike did you have before, and how do they compare?

I have spent some time on the Madone 5.2 w/KVF tube shapping, and Cannondle supersix and supersix evo.
I am loving the way this frame rides. The geo. is great, all around the bike feels very well rounded. Rides great in dirt and gravel.
Feels just as stiff as the other bikes mentioned (possibly stiffer lateraly..??) hard to say with how soft and smooth it is vertically but time will tell.

Very nice, any clue what the frame weight was?

Also what is the name of that paint scheme? Cant seem to find it under Project One. Looks close to "Trek Factory Racing" but not exact.

Disclamer... Not a real weight weenie, But I do respect and appreciate WW bikes.
I am not sure of frame/fork weight. I was to anxious to disassemble the bike any further when I got it. (Wanted to ride!) as listed with parts spec. (pedals Ritchey WCS, Garmin out front mount, and 2 RXL cages) she came in at 7.48kg or 16.5lbs
I would like to weigh the frame some time, when ever i get around to the first overhaul I will be sure to post updates.

As for the paint I was lucky enough to order this bike the day it was released. Since then the team paint has changed and this 2013 team color is no longer available.

Loving this bike so far! Just converted to tubeless last night, and ordered some DA 9000 pedals.
Hopefully I will be able to get an order in early next week for some new wheels (Aeolus 5 D3 clincher)
More updates and better photos to come.
