    Default New Road Disc Frameset from OPEN

    They snuck this out - I can’t help but like it:

    Pretty bike. I didn't see a geometry chart. Curious.

    I guess the non-compete Vroomen must have signed when he left Cervelo just expired.

    It's not a bad looking bike, but the limited sizing is showing: they couldn't even get promo shots with a slammed stem (yes, I know. But this is an ad! It is supposed to look ridiculously great), and a wedged top-mast just feels like it'll go wrong. I also feel like they're loosing some of the crowd that can afford this bike by dropping Campagnolo mech support. Or do the MAMILs no longer lust after Italian engineering?

    Hmmm, missed that. Still supports Shimano mechanical, or not?

    I assume this is like the Factor Vista in that is has no front mech cable stop. The latest Shimano front mechs have one built in, but obviously that means only Shimano mechanical is an option.

    I think that's correct. They call out being compatible with Shimano mech.

    Geo seems pretty Cervelo-ish.

    Ad copy is over the top, while also not providing the couple things people want, like clear shots of the bike.

    160mm rotors only, which is a fail IMO for a pure road bike.

    The blue paint job is nice.

    Conversely, I don't understand why 140mm is even an option on other disc road bikes - Id never choose to run such small rotors.

    Can’t deny that the slender stays and seat mast make it look very attractive......but no mech Campagnolo and BB format are deal breakers, oh and proprietary headset bearings? Is a bit shonky......however I would add it to a list of bikes I’d like to test ride.

    Continuous seattube for extreme comfort made me think of those hilarious condom vending machines from the 70's where everything was "ribbed for her pleasure."

    Just me?

    I was joking about needing a chipseal bike to add to my gravel bike now that gravel is getting paved in our county ... but that's what this is actually. Sorta.

    Is Min.D pronounced Mindy?

    It's the sort of thing that is designed around a coffee-machine in the corridor and disposed after one year or two. I prefer things to last, and the ones that you don;t have to pull your hair every time the go on the workstand. Thank you.

    It says you can use Campagnolo brakes, even though you're going to have a hard time setting up any braking system with the internal hose coming out of the frame SO close to the caliper.
    And you neve rknow what's going to happen next with Campagnolo, I guess in a month time we'll have anwers

    I am repurposing a 26" Scapin frame that was excellent in its own right, before its components went onto a similar one (the Ark), now 27.5" with silly bars.
    Just got to sort out the rubbing of the front rotor, and another couple of things. A lot of fun to come.

    Not all of their road bikes have been stinkers. Some of the ones they subbed out even ended up being nice.

    Pretty high BB for the style bike.

    I'm sure they'll sell a ton.

    Because a 140 rear feels so much more normal on a road bike than a 160. When I eventually replace the group on my Zukas, I'll definitely swap to 140 rear like my Mosaic.

    What's "normal"?
    It's just less offensive to the eye, if that is a problem. And that means a lot less material to dissipate heat, good luck on a long decent.

    Interns running Autocad, who cares ? if you can afford this frame, you can afford AXS.
    I don't think Brucey and the CTC are the market for this bike.
