I'd speak with Sigma Sports or Epic cycles. If anyone is likely to have one they would be at the top of the list.

new Enve Melee released
I just don't understand who Enve makes bikes for.
Probably not many people since the price is over $10,000.
Having said that, I like the idea of a bike that has about 10mm higher stack height than Tarmac/Aethos with 35mm tire clearance.

The Melee is less expensive than an SL7.

Cannondale Supersix EVO Leichtbau.

Only 200 available.
Been to my LBS today and list price in UK is £4250. They didn’t know it existed but is on the system. They are going to look into what the process is for ordering one.

All 200 have already been allocated to stores, we’ve got three of them sat in a box waiting for the embargo to be lifted.
That doesn’t sound hopeful! Are you in the UK and have you got a 56….

Yep, shoot me an email and I can get you put down for one.

At just 750 grams for a painted frame with all hardware, Leichtbau is ready to launch.
What size? At that weight including paint and hardware, it sounds like it could be lighter than Aethos while also offering semi-aero tubing

The article didn't say - I assume a 56 but don't know that. It also has this:

Leichtbau Carbon Construction
Our most sophisticated frame construction yet. Strategic use of advanced high and ultra-high modulus fibers, plus an incredibly refined layup yields a 90 gram savings over the already light Hi-MOD frameset.
2015 Wilier Zero.7 Rim - 6.37kg
2017 Trek Domane SLR-7 Disc - 8.36kg
2020 Trek Emonda SLR-7 Disc - 6.86kg

Is this the new frame cannondale was supposed to be releasing? I thought it was supposed to be more of a lightweight aero thing? A mix between the system six and the super six.

Nope just an unpainted s6, a lot of effort went into it apparently. Deciding to not paint a frame lol

Not to mention the carefully chosen name and 'pretend Lightweight' graphics...

Cannondale says it has achieved this reduction in weight by using its “most sophisticated carbon construction to date” with the “latest layup technology and most advanced materials”.

aka they didn't paint it...
