I really like it.I like the aero-ish/every situation approach(like the new Specialized Venge).The multiple angles seatpost is ingenious.Plus the small routing guide/junction box port.I also like the simplified stem,even if it doesn't fully hide the cables.They are nicely hidden by wind(handlebars/stem groove) and I think the simplicity of the design makes it much easier to live with contrary to the more complicated designs offered by other brands.Overall I am sold,take my money(I suspect it won't come cheap though).Strange the choice the Token bottom bracket(I think Hambini could help me on that).

I downloaded dealer catalogue, the geometry seems to be correct.
I thought it was off, but it seems it isn't!

wheelsONfire,Ι know we had this talk earlier but really think that on size L,figures D(trail) and K(headtube length)are wrong.This assumption derives not by any kind of egoism,but from the laws of geometry.A 73angle heatube with 43 fork offset cannot give a 43 trail.And 150 headtube cannot give a higher stack than size M(since fork length and bb drop are constant).Let's wait,also when the 785 Huez was lauched,the geometry chart had some errors(the seatube figure(A)was wrong,it was the same with 795 which has an intergraded seatpost,as is for 795 Blade RS but we could argue that this figure is the max allowed).Good thing that you're anticipating this frame as much as I do,at least we found out the cable routing today,hahaha!Let's hope our long wait will be over soon!

Blue looks good,but the pro team(Mondrian)colour not so much.I wish they had made it like the 586,where the colours were more pronounced.

Lovely bike, but i noted geometry was as i expected, low.
Why are there no "lookers" for us who need higher headtubes :-(
The low and forward position (steep seat tube and low head tube) is kind of the way things have been going for a while, albeit with people fitting inline seat posts and -17 stems to regular frames. Give it a go, you might like it.

I rode like this a few years, but i got rear back pain from this position.
Bad core strength i guess....

Interesting, Look has got rid of the geometry for Blade on their web.
I wonder if it'll stay like the typical Look race bike geo.
Then i would need alot of spacers, which would reduce the reach quite a bit.
I wonder how steep that stem is..

The ProTeam Black on Bellatis looks nicer than the irl pictures of the ProTeam Black. Also, head tube seems a bit long to me.
