They said it will be inline with existing pricing. So about $1350 for the frameset.

Yeah it's not super upright, but it's not super aggressive either.

Love that it'll clear 700c x 50mm and 650b x 2.2″ tires so that with fenders it can still fit 700 x 40 and 650 x 47.

Its mentioned in the article, maybe comments?, that they are using t47 to account for dropper posts.

Ah I see it now in the comments. That wasn't there when I first read the article a couple days ago.

And actually I'm the one who left the comment. Apparently I forgot I did that.

My favorite comment so far: "It even has features I didn't know I wanted, like a carbon seat tube!" Yeah, that sums me up. Not gonna lie though, curious what the bonded carbon/steel lifespan looks like. I guess LeMond did this and those bikes are still going strong so probably not a big deal.
