I heard from a little birdie that the new "UCI Illegal Specialized" will be called the "Ethos" and will be noticably below the UCI legal weight limit. It'll have minimal aero cues and be all about being below 6.8kg.
Is that a handful of shi%? :D Profile pic made me chuckle.

A true WW bike then! I'd be a sucker for a lightweight semi-aero disc brake bike.

Funny how the bike industry marketing pendulum swings back and forth between aero and lightweight.
HAHAHA! It is. My niece made it in her art class and I thought it was hilarious too.

Yeah, the pendulum swinging back and forth between aero and lightweight is probably evidence that the road market is pretty much mature in those regards. I'm hoping that the bike manufacturers can find more weighs to make the cable integration stuff lighter and easier to work on before I pull the trigger on an integrated bike.

Any idea if integrated front end present? Unlikely, right?

Surely such a bike would be released with the rumored Alpinist one-piece bar/stem.

The one piece bar stem is coming.

There is also an alpinist branded 27.2 seatpost.....

This year. I'm British. We write the date the correct way ;)
It’s actually one of the least practical formats to sort by.

YYYY-MM-DD being most logical
MM-DD-YYYY is the above except shifted one position to put less emphasis on the year (since we use annual cycles for nearly everything.)

If you use DD-MM-YYYY in filenames and then sort by name it would be a friggin’ mess.
If you use nested folders in the order of DD/MM/YYYY to catalog files, it would also be very messy.
Mate.

That's utter bullshit.

MMDDYYYY is the absolute stupidest date format for human beings to read and understand. The hierarchy makes no sense.

So how much is the price supposed to be? It should be higher than SL7, but SL7 already has a price tag of Pinarello/Colnago without the brand heritage...

Aethos should give the factor o2 vam disc and canyon ultimate cf evo disc a run for their money.
Ax-lightness VIAL evo 3,89kg - sold

Lightweight Urgestalt Disc 6,86kg - sold

Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL6 Ultralight 6,16kg - sold

Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7 6,93kg

Specialized S-Works Aethos 571g

No insight whatsoever, but I'd speculate that it will be comparable.
