Anyone have one or knows someone who does? Did a search - doesn't look like anything has been said in reference to them for quite some time.
Considering maybe getting another bike this Fall/Winter...already have a road bike and a fixed gear - want to get a Carbon frame and ended up stumbling across Aegis' website; the Shaman really caught my eye.

Doesn't it bother you that this model has been out for seven years and there're no pictures of it anywhere?
I find it interesting that a cyclocross bike requires a wide tire clearance and Aegis was always famous for having extremely narrow clearances on their road bikes.
Also, there's something about Aegis that bothers people - when you stand up on the pedals you feel like you're falling over the bars. It has something to do with the geometry of the bike but I'm not sure what.
If a manufacturer doesn't show pictures of their product there must be a reason.

I'm confused; when I go to their site - there's a section titled "Downloads" that has a brochure and a hi-res/lo-res picture of every bike. Am I missing something?
Regarding the awkward "stand-up" feeling...is that across the board or just specific models? Haven't heard anything but positive info from people who own one of their road bikes (just haven't heard a single word regarding anyone who has had any experience specifically to the Shaman)
