Chances are if you walk into a dealer and ask for a discount on a brand new limited edition frameset you will probably not get much of one (think between 0% - 10%). My understanding is the UL are selling pretty quickly.

Get it if it is worth it to you....get something else if it isn't.

I've ordered a female colourway, The geo is standard now, only the colour changes. As tempting as pink camo was I just cant see it re-selling easily.

Is the layup standard across both?

Yes, very well.

Definitely a reasonably priced option. Especially if stopping power and modulation aren't high on the priority list!

The TRP 970 is for Shimano and 979 is for SRAM. Or maybe I have it backwards - but TRP definitely makes a brake that is specific to SRAM pull ratio. Not that it stops any better than even Force brakes... but I guess that's moot until SRAM makes something DM.

15-16lbs - just a wag

Really light would be etap and CLX 32 tubulars


I'd be very surprised if it even hit 15 lbs with the Mavics. Of course, finishing kit will account for a lot. But I've done low 14# on wheels of similar weight, etap, and 9100 with much heavier frames.

59XXg would make me happy with a 58cm frame and alloy clinchers.

Either 9100 or Etap with EE DM
Matte Zipp Speed SL 120mm stem and SL70 aero bar in 40cm
Jagwire links
Mandible cages
Turbo cotton 24mm tyres

Will fill in the blanks as I go :)

That model ist called T980:

But it's not listed yet. I have only seen it OEM on BMC bikes.

Expected release in December, not much details in terms of weight/etc. I would think that if they are spacing the launch out that far it either is somehow lighter than the rim frame, or they haven't finished development and are trying to match it.

Not a fan of the color (I know that is personal). Plus if resale is every a thing to consider, it would be harder to sell.

Yeah, understandable about the color, it's not everyone's. Not sure I agree on the resale value though, it's got exactly the same geometry as the men's frame, so it fits the same number of people as the men's frame in the same size (color preferences aside :) ).

Or making sure they can meet the demand. I suspect these are going to move.
