Hello, weightweenies.
I am thinking of buying a works well 081 with direct mount brakes. I have been quoted 499 USD for the frame.
I have also been thinking of buying their handlebar WHB-014.

And I would like to know if anybody has tried the handlebars, and if somebody has some notes about the frame

Regards Kasper

300USD for just the frame? Or frame/fork/seatpost/clamp? What was your configuration for that quote?

I was quoted $499 for the v-brake variant (frame/fork/seatpost/clamp).

oh yes my fault. It was 499$. In danish krones it would be 3000. My mistake. Have you bought one?

No, I haven't. I'm just on the fence about ordering one. I may finally pull the trigger this weekend.

I'll use another one. I may even just re-use an existing bar I have on another bike.

I have the 081. Still evaluating it. Overall it's a nice frame but lacks a bit of stiffness in the front end. I do have what I believe is their version of the 3t aeronova, but hard to say since their are so many copies. Also fine.

I ended up swapping out to something different just because my hands would fall asleep, but the bar seemed pretty good.

I can give you whatever info you want to know on the frame.
