The öde Cycles brand name was something I've thought about for a while. öde in German essentially means empty or desolate or deserted. Of course Anonymous is nameless. So it's the bike without a name...but has a name. Paint is B.O.B. Gloss on Flat. They did a really nice job with it. Top of top tube is gloss. Inside of fork and rear triangle is gloss. Logos are gloss with exception of stripes on downtube and 'cycles'. Direct mount rear brake was a bit of pain with the power meter since it would just brush the Stages power unit on the crank arm. I ended up modifying the brake just slightly (removing a bit of material on brake) and it works perfect now.
Bar is really quite good. That particular design does flex a bit given the flat tops, but in terms of this particular bar compared to a 3T version, I couldn't tell a noticeable difference. Stem however, I'm curious on. It seems a bit soft in torsional flex. I'm going to swap back to a Pro alloy stem and just feel if there is a significant difference. If so, I may just go back to a tried and true alloy one.
In regards to the frame itself, I've been happy with it. The down tube is very narrow and the bike is quite slippery in the wind and also has the look. As far as I can see, it has similar rear design as a canyon aeroad but with a onda style fork. I inspected it very close and really couldn't find any flaws. Overall, I was quite impressed given the price.
I had the graphics done by the factory so I'm not sure on the exact technical process. It added an additional $250usd on the price and an additional 30 days, but they were good to work with. I went back and forth daily for about 30 additional days getting it how I wanted before going to paint. I supplied them with the images, font, and locations of like. They then mocked it up on the computer. We tweeked a couple things and finally they confirmed final locations/placement with paper cut outs on an actual frame before permanent application.
All in it was a 2 mo process to get the bike with pretty much all of that extra time relating to graphics and questions I had.
Great question on the clips! I have no idea where they came from. I had parts all over my bench and saw those sitting there. I'm sure they came from one of the components. Maybe the Sprint shifters? I really don't know but was going to try and find them seperate as well. Either that or in the jagwire brake cable set... But I don't think that was where they came.
Edit-i found out where they are from. They came in the wireless di2 module. Looks like you might be able to find some others online.

I'm kind of surprsided Shimano or even a chinese manufacturer hasn't been making some.
You notice any front end stiffness issues? I've only ridden outdoors once because there is a lot of snow here so I need to see if it becomes a problem, but it does seem the front end is a bit soft. On the trainer it's pretty easy to get it to sway. I have no experience with other CF aero bikes. Only an alloy allez Sprint which was overly rigid.
