Just my .02.
The seat post where it attaches to the seat is very large. It looks out of proportion to the seat and the frame. The seat post clamp is too conventional from what I can see. I would prefer more integration.
You know I am a sucker for the thin seat stays – those are awesome. The transition at the rear dropout seems a bit awkward. The chain stay is wide and it comes to a point. I know it can be made structurally sound, but I perceive it as a stress point. I know the trend has been for the tall “stiff” chain stays, but lateral stiffness is determined by the chain stay width. I know there is no room to increase width and I have always questioned if taller = stiffer.
The BB is awesome. It looks like I can get my hand through there. For funsies, I would like to see the crank with a hidden sprocket arm. Like C-Record.
I recently saw something that used magnets to hold water bottles in place. If it worked and the bottles don’t jump off when going over some RR tracks, I think those would better complement your frame.
While the heavily bladed forks are not my style, they are nonetheless very well done. The transition to the down tube is excellent.
Alright. The cockpit. I don’t like integrating stack height and reach with the stem. No worries. I also don’t like how manufacturers today integrate stems and bars. I actually change stack height a couple times a year depending physical condition and even to a much lesser degree, mental condition. If you are going to integrate, don’t hold back. Do all three – stack height, reach and bar width. Then integrate the LCD into the mix as an option.
Next is the shifters. I think they can me much more subtle. I know you probably want to highlight them, but I don’t need the +/- or their thickness. They could be just membrane buttons. I also question the reverse hinge. You are putting that thickness exactly where I want to grip the bars when I am in the drops. I can’t get my hand around it which would be important for my silly town line sprints where I fanaticize I am Cipo. I’m high on endorphins, in my fantasy world, and you would be harshing my buzz.
On a side note, I’d like to see some detail about the brakes calipers.
