Apart from the detail of the seatpost clamp(?) that extrudes out of the seat tube it looks very nice. If it is really 780gr at size M that is very cool.

yeah the old wilier dude in the video claims it is 780 grams in medium with all frame hardware... that would be wild!

the lines look beautiful (again, minus the seatpost clamp). cockpit and cable integration spruces things up, and i like the fork/headtube junction (nicer than the new addict).

and check out wilier's site for the red and blue colorways-- that blue is gorgeous!

I've been debating something 'off-the-peg', this is definitely going on the list, dependant as to whether I can overlook that seatclamp...

Actually the weight is for the black version in size M. The blue and the red frameset should be a litte bit heavier. But still, amazing weight!

Why it still keeps the bridge between the seat stays?

80g for the pair, I think they are decent. A bit bulky though.

Enlighten me on these, why are they a problem? This bike ticks all the boxes (other than press fit BB) otherwise

I much prefer standard thru axles instead of all these proprietary fly by night alternatives, but according to James Huang of CyclingTips lso, "SpeedRelease can not be retrofitted to other bikes as it requires a special slot in the fork tip and rear dropout.....it helps that while SpeedRelease requires special dropouts, those dropouts are also compatible with standard 12mm thru-axles."

The weird seatpost clamp is an eye sore. I would take a look at the Sarto Seta Plus scheduled to be announced at the end of the month. It ticks all the boxes

-Light weight
