Different carbon was used....

Look at the top tube to seat stay connection, the lower mounting of the seat stays on the seat tube, the thick chain stays with thin seat stays.

ha, what a ridiculous comment. Did the Cervelo P5 copy the Scott Plasma?

SLR - http://cdn3.coresites.mpora.com/rcuk/wp ... 3-copy.jpg
Bura SL - http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8193/8116 ... da2c_c.jpg

I'm not even going to comment on the "thin seatstay, thick chainstay" thing, as tons of bikes are using that now. Thats like saying, its got a headtube, so they copied the other bikes with headtubes.

Obviously some influence happens between bikes throughout the industry but Neil Pryde to date has not seemed to be just following along.

So, is it done yet? I can't wait to hear your ride impressions!
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Lust.
Want.
Desire.
Yearning.
Jonesing.
Coveting.

Many things I feel for this frame. Many, many things.

No comment on the low seat stay to seat tube connection? No one was doing but BMC until the Bura did it...

It is done. I'll post pics later-- only ride today was out on my driveway-- it's freezing out w/ 30-40 mph wind gusts. Not going out on an 11.33lb (5.14 kg) bike in that. Yes 5.14 kg and I still have to make some changes that will drop it even more-- I'm figuring it'll sit around 11.25 lbs when I make those changes. BTW, that's WITH THE EDGE 500, MOUNT AND CADENCE/SPEED SENSOR. (in the words of the South Park version of Jessie Jackson, "Go on, kiss it!")

Edit- quick wall hanging pic.
