    Oh, bikesdirect is selling these frames in matte black, gloss black and gloss white for $599 (frameset, but I just resold the fork since I had the Enve which I like very much). Agree that the standard Motobecane paint schemes are atrocious.

    I think Cannondale is copying you!

    Cool. Although anyone who wants me to buy a bike sight unseen and doesn't provide stack and reach should be flogged. I know it can be calculated, but I'm a lazy American who doesn't believe in science.

    I love my Six13 but this is a pretty good budget option should something go wrong...

    Yeah, I've never seen a site list stack/reach for frame geometry. For road bikes it would be nice to have more nuanced fit information. Then again, my fit seems to be constantly evolving depending on how much & what kind of riding I'm doing; maybe in 10 years I'll have it nailed down to the mm.

    The LeChampion was well reviewed so I decided it was worth the small premium over [aesthetically] similarly Chinese frames on ebay. It's not very light for a CF; I believe my 58cm was 2lbs 12oz, but that is perfectly fine by me -- it's still a ~16.5lb build, and I suspect that is not what's holding me back

    Nashbar has an arguably better-deal carbon road frame option too: http://www.nashbar.com/bikes/Product...2_543482_-1___

    (And today it would be 20% off.)

    That is probably a better deal since the included fork is full carbon -- and the tapered steerer is probably the way to go

    My next road frame will be a disc frame. After riding carbon wheels for a week or so, I've learned [what everyone already knew] that a carbon braking surface is a horrible idea.

    Good to see you out there. The W&OD was fairly empty, the MVT always seems to have the regulars.

    Also I *think* I saw Rootchopper a little earlier on his recumbent?
