Im don't weigh reviews on faith just content.
The things he said he backed up with cam footage inside the frames & mic measurements
Makes sense. Things like smooth carbon and perfectly round BB are nice to see. I like to see well manufactured products.

Unfortunately those things won't contribute to whether the bike handles or rides like a $200 or $2000 frame.
Have you ridden it? Or just have your mind made up for other reasons?
I don't have my mind made up. I didn't say it rides like a $200 bike. Just that Hambini's subjective reviews can't be trusted and the objective ones (measurements and pictures) don't impact whether the bikes are any good to ride.

Yeah gonna have to agree to disagree with that :thumbup:

If good measurements don't make a good riding bike you should try a badly measure one :lol:

To be clear, I'm talking about things like BB roundness and how nice the carbon looks on the inside. Layup and geometry have far greater impact.

i ride a 2021 emonda 52cm the geo matches the size M more than S which is odd. should i go M if thats closer to a 52?

Nominal sizes vary by mfg and are largely arbitrary. Always use stack and reach to select your size.
