Caveat to above, I assumed a certain level of quality of any frame including one of monocoque construction. No less than the carbon forks many of us have been using. After nuding a Whisky fork, it can be a bit unsettling seeing what filler had been applied. Sent that fork back and the next was far better.

FWIW, Calfee is very capable of shaping their tube joints and painting over carbon wrap to give that same lug-less look as the Evolve. Our nude finish Calfee frames are immaculate. It would be interesting to see a Evolve unpainted and what might be visible.
