New frame, new geometries, new everything.
New weight distribution, an excellent product that follows the technical fashions of the moment.
All very well done, albeit in the norm given the high prices.
There are no notes to make, but possibly underline that in the face of a high price there is a high availability of sizes, so as to allow everyone to have a frame of the correct size, which rarely happens.
Ultimately the frame doesn't come with a cheap price, but it's worth what it costs.
