It was mentioned on another thread, but here's the first video I have seen of it. Looks like Ursus TC37 wheels (around 1500-1600 grams) and it seems like it can take 650b as well. Probably a decent competitor in the aero gravel category to be compared with 3T's offerings.

The orange version looks awesome. Each to their own, but I think there should at least be some sort of option for a front derailleur.

Interesting name, definition = voodoo initiation ceremony.

Interesting that the Classified system already found its way to market. I think I'd care about the 3-4% efficiency loss when the planetary gears are spinning, but who knows.

Both colors in the cycling tips article aren't available in the US.
Beyond dissapointing. I'm thinking about buying the GRX Di2 version but likely will do a frame up build if I end up with one.

Not a fan on that cockpit so a different option like the 3T aeroflux with a hollow stem might be ideal.

I was actually thinking the handlebar dimensions look pretty good, similar to the Zipp Xplr bar.

No front derailleur mounting is as stupid as not being 650b compatible.

Straight into the trash it goes.

I understand that Kanzo Fast and Kanzo Speed are different products, but does anyone have experience on the Speed?

The Speed frame would be quite nice for building a winter (road) bike: room for wider tyres and attachment points for mudguards. It could also be used as a gravel bike, with a second set of wheels.

No, I didn't miss it. A proprietary hub?

Why do you have a bad sense towards the hub invention?

Proprietary hub (so proprietary rear wheel), proprietary cassette, and it's wireless too so you need the nonsense at the cockpit too. And there's a weight penalty of around 200gr too.

200g weight penalty against 1x.

Sram Red AXS Front derailleur – 165g
small chainring weight between 31-39g
Then some weight for derailleur mount tab.

So, weight is pretty comparable with 2x chainring set-up.

As for the nonsense at cockpit, GCN just program di2 shifter to control it...
I mean, I can set two out of six buttons across the pair of my di2 shifters to change page on my bike computer. Setting those buttons to shift gear in rear hub instead sound trivial.

I've been eyeing this bike since it was first announced...they finally have more info on other builds besides the Classified one up on their site. Looks like Di2 1x, GRX 1x, Rival, and frame. Another N=1 contender??

Would be a consideration for N=1 if there was a 2x option.

The one with the Classified hub is 2x.
