They said it will be inline with existing pricing. So about $1350 for the frameset.

Yeah it's not super upright, but it's not super aggressive either.

Love that it'll clear 700c x 50mm and 650b x 2.2″ tires so that with fenders it can still fit 700 x 40 and 650 x 47.

Its mentioned in the article, maybe comments?, that they are using t47 to account for dropper posts.

Ah I see it now in the comments. That wasn't there when I first read the article a couple days ago.

And actually I'm the one who left the comment. Apparently I forgot I did that.

My favorite comment so far: "It even has features I didn't know I wanted, like a carbon seat tube!" Yeah, that sums me up. Not gonna lie though, curious what the bonded carbon/steel lifespan looks like. I guess LeMond did this and those bikes are still going strong so probably not a big deal.

Pretty sure the SpeedVagen's use carbon seat tubes and have done this for some time, so I wouldn't be overly concerned about the longevity of this spec.

Does anyone know what the rear axle spacing will be for the 5.0? Curious if they went from 12x142 to boost?

Almost positive they’re staying with 142. Being able to run road cranks is a big part of the Rodeo ethos.
