Rose just announced new Backroad gravel bikes. AXS Mullet carbon for 3.699 EUR. Not sure if they are available in the US

Looks neat. Also looks like a mashup of 5 other frames.

way too heavy for 2020, with pedals you are looking at 20 lbs with very few spots to lose weight

Not directly available in the US, but you can get it. I was considering one and reached out to them. If your order from their .com website they'll ship it to you in the US via DHL. They charge 250 Euros and DHL quoted me around 8-9% import duties on total sale.

damn it ... 8-9%. On a 5k bike at least, that's an additional $500.

What did you end up getting ?

under 18lbs for a budget build, if you want prebuild bike, Canyon Grail slx and Cervelo Aspero are pretty light too, both under 18lbs easy

Yeah, I was excited about trying to be "the guy" with one. But at almost $5500 with exchange rates and import duties (is what I figured) I decided to go with a Lynskey GR300 with GRX Di2.
