Pit-churs are nice, but come on man!

What are your impressions? :clue::boss:
I actually like it...Eric and I went over a ton of tech and background on it ..I don't make a decision based on someone else's excitement being people are always trying to sell themselves and side of things...he's an investor in Atherton bikes...

But my impression are it's fast, rides really good and feels extremely well balanced...but that said I'm not waiting 9 months for a frame....
Frame is amazing and I'd grab one of the opportunity arose...I want to ride the DH bike.

Head tube and chainstays are too short.
this. universal cs length on a premium frame is inexcusable. being lazy and/or cheap. no idea what they were thinking re: the mico head tubes. did they have to do 2 bad things to offset the one good change (straight tt) to maintain the required level of brand undesirability?

Not going to argue on the CS length (size 3 and larger should probably scale up a bit), but I really don't get the HT length griping. It has very comparable stack heights to its contemporaries, bikes that have been well reviewed with no mention of the front ends being too low. Y'all do realize that a 29" front wheel with a 180mm single crown is crazy freaking tall.

That's a good point. Why the f*ck does it have a single crown fork?

Paul Aston has gone and made his idea of a contemporary version of nicos Vprocess and on first glimpse it looks incredible. a little industrial in its fabrication but super cool

I rode with Paul the other day and got to check out his bike. It’s pretty sweet and he goes quick on it.

Maybe you already know this…. Nico made that frame and the 2 others for Paul. He does a lot of custom frames for people and taught me a lot about framebuilding.
Here’s his Instagram

I had no idea that nico was involved in/is Egerie. His involvement in the brand doesn’t seem to be splashed about as much as one would expect
