Carbon Cyclocross :: Proto :: 001

First view: our new carbon cyclocross prototype frame, currently nameless. Like our Corvid road model, the production frames will be built with rider specific custom geometry. All of our carbon parts are made right here in the USA just for I.F. by ENVE Composites, the frames are built here in Somerville in our workshop. Shown painted with a satin clear coat.

The frame features a headtube that accepts a large diameter InSet headset.

All new lugs.

All new tubes.

The frame will also feature the new press fit 30 bottom bracket standard.

The little screw beneath the BB will hold a portion of the wiring harness associated with the Shimano Di2 electronic shifting system.

This one is en route to PDX for some serious racing in the hands of none other than Molly Cameron. Molly will also be racing this frame at Cross Vegas, so keep an eye out if you are in Vegas a couple of weeks (Sept. 22nd 2010).

We love bikes too! For all your Canadian followers, they can help build bicycles for others by simply eating chocolate...

The Bicycle Factory is giving Canadians the opportunity to help send up to 5,000 bikes to Ghana – by eating chocolate! Participants also have a chance to win a trip to Ghana to help deliver the bikes. Details are online now at  http://thebicyclefactory.ca

Check it out and if you have any questions - let me know!
Thanks - Aditi B.
