I can tell you directly, Vial EVO Race is same model as Sculp. Only that it has been revised in layup, stiffness and impact resistance.
And yes, this means it has gained some weight. But i love it! Nice to see you have the gen 1.
Bikes:

Ax Lightness Vial EVO Race (2018.12.21)

Paduano Racing Fidia (kind of shelved)
Open *UP* (2016.04.14)


Ex bike; Vial EVO D

Yeah I know, since I also measured the produced swift Sculp before sold it. It shared geometry with ax lightness Evo race m size(all Sculp were produced at this size), however the prototype I measured is slightly different...ImageImage

What wheels are you planning? Surely the rest of bike deserves better than “gifted junk”

Those are the most poorly wrapped bars I've seen in a while.

Carbon wheels aren't my preference, i am only a ameteur commuter. Sanding and etc handcraft works that are too demanding efforts

the wheels are fine for commuting but you are seriously limiting the enjoyment of such a frame and its parts.

:thumbup: I like this build, nice to see something different. Light but also practical. Keep us informed as you make changes.

The reason for that suck ospw installed was merely aimed for the competence of 32t cassette and actually I obtained this before the wilfi available on the market. With such crappy ospw + the extralite chain ring I paid a lots effort on the setup (plus pitiful marks due to multiple chain drop and adjustment of that tiny limit screw)

I would definitely stay away from these kind of products in next argument (maybe etap axs), just tired to swap back for now.
