I guess you all no it. Your are out watching a race and you see something different... You look closer because you can't recognize it. And then, something complete new... Where is you camera... Of course at home. The only option is you mobilephone which take crappy pics. Well here they are, and sorry for the bad quality.

I have heard rumours about this super frame but saw it in real life yesterday. Still a prototype without any paint, decals or clearcoat...

:shock:
The bottom area of the headtube looks weird to me, maybe it's just because the frame is unpainted?

Well, what I have heard from a rider from Randers is that the price will be so high that it is only the fewest people can affort it! Also the weight will be lover than the addict. They have use the most highend aerospace tecnology the develop this frame. Every is only rumours... I heard so talked yesterday about that the Team GLS (Thomas Kristiansen) will be riding it in the nearest future... Still highly clasified rumours :wink:

I saw it yesterday under Århus Festuges gadeløb. I think it was ridden by someone in the gentleman race (former winners race). Didn't see that race because I was trying to get fat inside the VIP tent :wink: But the bike was standing outside when I went to see the real race.

By the way, Robbie McEwen won...

I like the 1K weave, too bad the fork isn't matching

I think that the girl/woman on picture 9 must be pretty embarassed on frame..I see this from her legs..how is she standing.. ;)

btw really interesting frame..some things on new frame looks same as on an old frame..junction of upper tube and seat tube..anybody know if new frame is same carbon as old one?

have a nice day..

Looks very nice - I just can't stop beating myself up: Why - oh why didn't I spot the frame myself :D - I even participated in the elite race (although I was OFF the back in a hurry).

While I really like frames with integrated seat masts - especially since we have serveral in the garage - I would really like for the manufacturers to place the bolts for the seat clamp to the rear of the seat mast. On our TCR Advanced ISP bikes, I have had to pad the clamp bolts with a bit of handlebar wrap and electricians tape as the edges of the clamp are very acute and have worn holes to the inner thigh portion of serveral of my wifes shorts and has also abraided the same area on some of my bibs! :?

The owner/rider of that frame is either really really flexible or is afraid to cut the seatmast to the appropriate length.
