Looks like a very interesting WW build for some of us in the near future.
Easy to get under 6,8kg. :)

Here's "Google Translate" version to english, not brilliant translation, still it can be read:

I feel the seatstays are neither here nor there...as in they should have gone completely flush with the TT/ST junction or been dropped even more.

Well, I suppose they are trying to bridge both camps - not too radical for those who want a trad. look but tapping into the current on-trend aesthetic.

I'd still like to see the production model in that red & gold paint scheme..

Looks like the Eurobike model was the 2018 frame with disc brakes. Probably an inhouse custom mod to get something out the door for Eurobike.
