Odd that they got it so 'wrong'. Plenty of other brands have gotten their storage lids sorted from the beginning.

Just how Specialized designed it, and tested in the tunnel, I'm sure. At least it was an appropriately branded bottle! Clap

Did anyone see Don do anything with that bottle or was it purely an empty bottle wedged in to keep the lid shut?
I'd read that he'd wedged a bottle in there but assumed it was in a cage and usable as hadn't seen the picture. Carrying a completely superfluous bottle just to hold pieces of your bike together is another level.
Will this go down as one of the worst product launches ever?[/quote]

No, its specialized so some idiots will buy it.

IMO it is as bad as the P5X launch where every cervelo athlete went comparatively slower. Still, some idiots bought it.

What a #@?# show. At first glance an ugly bike and then we find out the pros on it are having to bodge it to make it work properly.

An example of an optimised 'affordable' bike; it's probably scary how close this would perform to a modern 'superbike'.
