Maybe it's the angle of the last pic, but the top tube looks having more slope than the Merida. So my vote goes to similarity with BMC, moreso, seeing the total no-exposed-wiring-anywhere front integration :D

is it a test prototype or the definitive frameset? It's not bad but would be very similar to Scott Foil

I'll bet new BB "standard" ( read another iteration of creaking BB30 / why creaking ? because it's "made by Cannondale" :idea: ) ... "BB95XA XVZ/18 ver2.1" . Works naturally only with C cranks :mrgreen:

It'll be praised by "Cannondale church" parishians anyway .

Will be fun watching it :D

Strange to have a size sticker on a pre-production model?

I like it.

Wonder if they will stick with the Vision bar, or will see a variation of the 'one-piece' bar csystem that was supposed to be on the 2018 Synapse range.

It does look pretty similar to other iterations (Merida). Hopefully Cannondale has at least attacked the major problems of the genre being weight and ride quality. Madone pretty much nailed those but at an insane price point for H1 (minus discs).

Where are the braking oil tube and Di2 wires? Are they all goes through inside the steam and the headtube?

Looks like they enter the head tube just in front of the stem.

For all those saying it's ugly, aero bike design in converging, they are all going to look roughly like this if they are truly seeking to minimize drag. Possibly the only unique features on this frame are the SAVE chainstays and the seat/top tube junction filet. A real paint job would go a long way to improving its looks.
