Nice, but I'm not sure about that water bottle, like the idea behind the removable bars and the configuration on the cockpit.

Price wasn't so nice though.

So it's priced between the superbikes (P5X, Falco, Andean, even stuff like SC9) and "normal" TT bikes but for something that looks a lot like a BMC TM01? Hmm...

I like the folding handlebars, that's pretty cool. Otherwise, meh.

And I still can't get the idea of why discs are more aero than integrated hidden brakes. They are saying that moving the brakes to discs enhances aero around the frame - sure, but just by moving resistance elsewhere?

I know that you're not supposed to put too much force through the handlebars, but I'm not sure how comfortable I'd feel on a multi-piece base bar. Surely there's more scope for something to come loose or fail than there is in a single piece bar Shocked

I assume it just goes through and through the stem?

Cable housing will keep length in place so nothing should move as long as you have a bit of spare housing inside the bars to extend allowing them to bend down.

Presumably after the bars are detached they will still hang loose off the hydraulic hoses and Di2 wires. I guess you'd need to be very careful to make sure they don't move around too much or you might disconnect something Shocked

if they have thought it through, it could well be a good idea....I have kinked cables whilst faffing with getting bars in place to fit my old bike box...
