New HM Carbon Tri/TT bike

Hi All,


This new TT/Tri bike is out and about now, have seen a few being pedalled quite fast! Anyone got any thoughts on it?
HM Carbon frameset, hidden rear brake below BB, internal cable routing, interesting downtube, a little Wilier in there perhaps?

Cheers

That bike, which you also posted in the other thread is one of the current open source molds available from Taiwan. You will find this bike in a multitiude of paint schemes and brand names as the year progresses. You can usually find them in naked carbon on ebay.

Nothing wrong with it, you just probably won't find any aero testing or anything like that.

For the money I'd rather have a Cannondale, Felt B16, QRoo Seduza.

The one thing that buggers me about that frameset is that you could never get steep enough with how much set back that post has.
