Here's a test by an Italian webpage (easily translated by Google): https://www.cyclinside.it/web/look-795- ... una-prova/ Quite positive.

I just ordered a disk brake frameset, however it wont be arriving until march though.
Which size? Please keep us informed. Size M would fit me perfectly (the first aero bike ever to do so), so I am keenly interested :D
Size S and will do. It's a long time until March though, in the time being I've been pondering whether to spec it with Shimano or possibly wait and see what Sram puts out with their 12 Speed. Any suggestions?

I will be going with Campa 12x, I think.
Where did you order it?

My dealer said it would arrive in March but now postponed to May/June. Has anyone gotten theirs yet?

I asked about it a few weeks ago, and was told my orders production run was to be finished on the 19th of March, and a further 2 weeks delivery time to the store. I'll try get an update this week.

*Update*
Just got shipped

Looks good! I ordered the same but one size up. The frame is heavier than a madone, a bit worried mine will be a real porker :lol:
Which ceramic coating do you use?

Disc?

The above framset is heavier than I thought, I'd love to see non-disc weights.

It's real purrty though, heavy, but purrty.

Nice choice on the white too. I'd expect the white and Metallic Blue to be on the heavier side.

Damm thats heavy. I have been thinking rim brake version but 500g just from seatpost and stem...

Bikerumor claim rim brake M-size frame should weight 950g and 300g. Hard to believe they could make rim version so much lighter or thats without paint as it's coming standard way to notify weights.

I'll try get access to some accurate scales when I can, but it's not going to change the fact it's a porker haha.

I'm using CarPro CQuartz UK 3.0 which I had left over after coating my car. Very easy to apply and the results are stunning on gloss finishes.

Yes, disc for me.

Rim size M is 1260g frame only and fork is 370g
