While scouring the web today found these.

Looks pretty cool. Wish they were race legal.

So, maybe they are saving money by not creating separate Endurance and Spring molds for each given size. Maybe they are using the same molds and adding more carbon when the sprint frames are being produced. (I don't know if that's how it would go down. Not familiar with carbon fiber manufacturing.).

That's exactly how you would stiffen a frame using the same mold. The internal bladders just compress the the carbon lay up against the inside of a rigid mold. How you alter the lay up itself would make no difference in the methodology of how the frame is produced. Once you have your shape/mold, and general lay up figured out, you could then customize the level of compliance and stiffness just by playing around with different lay up schedules.

Weird. It wasn't working for me before. It's an interesting frame. Price seems reasonable as well, especially considering that they are drawing their own tubes. Maybe they saw the hole left behind by Tiemeyer and decided that a well engineered frame that's not just an open offering from the factories still has a place amongst all the carbon that's the rage on the track.

Yeah, the geometry on the long reach version looks great!

wow. If I didn't have my frame already this would be the one for me to get. long version.

Pretty flippin impressive
