More info on the Alpha will be released at given time.
I think we have already done well there with the Morpheus and its presentation so would like to keep it similar with the Alpha.

Beautiful looking bike but for some reason I think the Daedalus seat post looks out of place, the setback looks odd?

Wow. I love it. The green looks awesome!

Ya, the post just ain't as sexy as it used to be, eh?
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

I think the post with the thin seatstays is a bit odd, but I do love love love that green.

See they had to hold it down to stop it floating away :grin:

All it really needs now is an extralite stem. (sorry, sick humor :twisted: )

The green is awesome. I have a 2xu jersey that would go really nicely w/ that frame.

But at 771g it's far from 580g.

True, but take away the paint and check the weight of the smallest frame available (as all manufacturers seem to do) and you may be close :D

I like the comment about 'flexible seat stays for more comfort'. It could read 'due to the low frame weight the lack of carbon in the seat stays means that they flex a little' :grin: (only joking!! :abscond: )

Not sure if this is a production version either?

I was able to put my hands on the one in the picture at EB and they had another one there they were painting at the booth.

It'll be available in July of 2020 given that the F1 series ceases to exist.
