bring the bike to a few gravel races is not really R&D, what actual scientific test did they do? A proper composite testing facility would be very expensive. Which factory in Taiwan are the bike produced? There are state of the art factories like Quest composite that make Trek and Canyon frames, there are also no name factories that makes $500 open mold with questionable QC. Every time I hear T700 or T800 carbon it gives a indication of the latter.
