I have heard that they are changing the design of the OCR. Is this true? I just got mine a year ago, and I will be very disappointed if they change it.

OCR 1 and 2 already in stock. Frame is new, a bit longer and slacker if I remember right, with curved stays for added comfort. Different component selections. Carbon fiber fork on the 1 and 2.

The new OCRs are awesome. I built and rode them all day at work today. And for the prices their even better.

-frame is lighter (can't remember how much, but noticeable)
-frame is more forgiving (curved stays)

That's all I can think of right now as far as the frame. Depending on the model, the componentry has changed as well. Ultegra shifters and rr der on the OCR1 for instance. Cool Formula paired spoke wheels too.
