    Woof. I wouldn't trust all 235 pounds of me on a carbon Visp frame, but if you do, let us know how it works out.

    Killer "Whale"
    The word Whale should not be used when referring to a carbon fiber anything!!

    Frame weight:1750g+/-50g
    Fork weight: 450g+/-30

    I'd trust the bike to hold a whale with those weights. The geometry looks a bit funky with a 51cm seat tube and a 56cm top tube, not sure if they are just built for miles a saddle to bar drop or what.
    I've thought about getting an ebay no-name carbon frame though. Not one that weighs quite that much, but that also is far cheaper than any I've seen before.

    That should tell you something.

    They joined eBay this month but that still doesn't mean I'd buy that hunk of crap.
