Are we likely to see you wearing one in the future Mr F?

I'd like to know the diameter of that tube......doesn't look 'that' big to me.........interesting.

I wish!!

Well not until I've paid off my loan and credit card for the current bike   ;D

The diameter looks similar to mine and this was posted on the bacchetta forum

It's going to take a little longer to get out on the market, due to the testing we did.  Want to really bring JS to tears?  Tell him another CA frame is headed off to the frame testers- does it every time.  The good news?  The final frame at 750 lbs. went 100,000 cycles, then at 850 lbs. it went another 100,000 cycles.  We stopped there, but was confident enough to raise the rider weight limit to 250 lbs.

Now, we have a solid platform to work and test from and much better control over QC and production.  It will give us the ability to look at ways to lower frame weights safely and test them accurately, as time goes by.
 

There is talk of getting the weight down further!!
Trouble with a bike like this, it's only 10lb lighter than mine and with my 16.5 stone on top the 10lb won't make much difference  ;D
