That's a very impressive weight for an aero bike.

I think this is going to be my next bike, depending on the details of the new canyon.

Love it, but £5400 for a frameset seems very steep, even if it does include integrated bar/stem and bb. Makes the SL7 look like a bargain

A hybridized mountain/road/gravel bike with tea cup plates hanging off the hubs is an "aero bike?" Lolz. Hilarious. Bike looks like crap, and a maintenance nightmare with all the buried cables.
That's some delusion if you think that's a gravel/mountain bike. Care to explain what makes you classify it as one?

I'll agree on the cables but since it only supports electronic shifting and disc brakes there really should never be a reason why you'd have to redo all of the wiring/hosing after it's built once.

If you want to look through his posts, hes very obviously in need of mental help. Best to ignore.

Things I never thought I'd say: I'd really like a peach colored bike.

But, here I am, saying: I'd really like that peach colorway.

Definitely looks amazing. With a lower price I'd be seriously interested in one but I just can't justify a $5400 frameset.

Not been a Factor fan. Until now! Great looking bike. But prices are sky rocketing this year

I'd like to get one, but hoping to make the disc brake and 12sp jump all at once ... c'mon Shimano, bring us the new DA!
