the new issue has a pic of them. I think they are making a Std frame and a sloping tt one too. Making 4 models and only avaliable a bike, no frmaes. The highest end Ti will also have carbon seat stays and the blade will too.

What's your question? Photos are, at this time, still top secret. And probably will be until Interbike. I wax philosophic about the new bikes, but it would be easier (and shorter) if you posted a more specific question.

well my bad for asking such a general question! i'd like to know what type of AL they are built from, is it a carbon monostay deal? (like the pinarello's, etc.) what is an approximate retail price for frame/bikes?, will they come in a decent number of sizes or are they trying to save money--like Giant?, does it have an integrated headset? what sort of fork will they use?

That's about it I guess. Apparently pictures are not so top secret if they've already been in velo news? Have to go find a copy I guess.

VeloNews has an article and a photo of their new al/carbon bikes.
They just sell the complete bikes, not framesets $2300-$2500.
