Thoughts on Breezer Radar Pro Frameset?

Breezer Bikes - RADAR PRO FRAME - Bike Overview for frameset
Breezer Bikes - RADAR EXPERT - Bike Details for complete bike

Looks like an interesting new frameset from Breezer. Designed as a adventure/touring bike, but seems to be leveled at bike packing as well.

Space for 2.1 inch tires!
Five bottle mounts
Disk brake
only $499 MSRP

But hardly any details, not even weight!

Radar is long in the TT for all sizes (even XS has 57cm ETT). Breezer-style rear dropouts can interfere with the fitment of racks and trailers.

Surly LHT/DT is more likely to fit someone well at same cost.

Seems like a good budget option for gravel/dirt/unpaved overnights.

I will second this - if you plan to use dropbars, this frame will produce much more stretch than comparable frames designed for dropbars.

I like mine a lot so far (Breezer RADAR Expert). Logged about 300 miles. 1 loaded overnight tour. Leaving tomorrow for 7 to 9 days or so through upstate New York.
