I contacted them and asked if it was or was not T47, becausethe website still says pressfit... to my surprise, they have not responded and it's been several days.

I thought someone here on WW ordered a new one with new paint scheme. Hopefully, they will reply with accurate answers.

I have also ordered the new model with the new paint scheme. I didn't want the BB, seat post and handlebar when purchasing the frame...., and from where I can access the online ordering (I didn't seem to have an option not to include these as part of the order which increased the purchase cost and made it less appealing). I was contacted by my local distributor here in Aust and he could order it without the accessories (only the frame & fork).
Happy days.
Deposit down, I cannot wait until I get the notification of the frame is about to be shipped and I can build this thing.
I might need to get a new set of wheels to go with this build........., :lol:

The bottom bracket standard is T47a, so a typical T47 BB won't work.

When folks use the VAM headset spacers on this bike - can you use those with a regular stem? I typically use a fairwheelbikes dot com 'Fair Wheel Kalloy Uno Stealth Stem'.

I have definitely run a standard compact crankset without issues and I think a 52/36. I will double check in my strava logs and report back.

I have both the stem and the spacers lying around. I will put them together this weekend and hit you back to let you know how it looks.

Has anyone been using LS as a road bike? I.e. having two wheelsets for both road and gravel? If yes, what groupset or gear ratio did you go with?

It's possible and potent. But I couldn't stand the design of too big tire clearance with 28mm tires.

I use VAM spacers on my LS and not the round ones they send with it. My stem is a Zipp Service course SL. No issues with fitment.
