First Olympia Ikon in North America, so I figured I'd give WW's the sneak peak.
Full Di2 and mechanical integration, including hidden battery slot under downtube.
Choice of monolink or regular seatpost; press-fit bb; + tapered headtube.
Hi pressure moulding system creates a very uniform carbon surface, even on the inside of the frame.
Pretty darn cool in person, sub $3k retail price aint bad at all, and Italian geometries are always nice.
And no more complaining about my crappy pictures ;)

Lovely looking.

I'd maybe work on the stamp on the wood though, certain I read it as "blackshit" first time round.

Looks nice. Im not sold on the battery box yet but thats another story.

At least to me, it looks a lot like a scott foil. Although i would probably take this over the scott given the choice.

Interesting. What size is that? The headtube looks massive...

Fantastic image and beautiful bike. The contrast the wood provides is outstanding.

I thought it was a Scott Foil at first!

Corrected for frame to replicate actual angles as built.

That sloping top tube changes the look quite a bit, in my opinion.
