Are there any differencies between OCCP Team Issue and Empella Bonfire SL cx-frames ? I guess Empella is really quick handling because of steep frame angles, but this may not be good for my purpose. Is OCCP any different, I haven't found the frame spec's nowhere and "end user experience" is asked here...
Thanks for any input.
I'd say Empella is kinda "old-school" while the OCCP is modern criterium off-roader.
You ask for the different between my Team Issue frame and the Empella Sl....
The first difference is ,that my frames are made in handbuilding by an very small manufacturer in czech republic.
The Empellas and also the most other CX frames, the are on the market will be made in Taiwan and China.
I think my geometrie is also much betther than an Empella frame.
The weight of my frames is also betther than an SL frame, when you use an Python fork.
You can also find the frame specs on www.occp.de

Have you measured the OCCP bb height ? How about Empella ? This is my interest, as I'm looking for a frame maily to build an off-season road bike, so low center gravity would be a bonus.
