Yes, even with the new molds we kept the head tube very low and aggressive.
Could you compare the difference in ride quality between the FRD, F1 and FC. Or are we really just looking at a weight difference? I find it hard to believe that a different CF lay only alters the weight.

Don't get me wrong, the F1 is a rocket, and Dave is right (obviously) about the lively, springy feel. However, as an everyday bike, the FC just seems like more of a ride that you can settle into and forget about.
Now if the FRD takes the F1 stiffness and adds 11% more compliance then that would be the bike I'd want.
