Awesome bike. I don't think I've seen a Dash post/saddle combo in the wild yet. Clearly a couple of choices made with weight in mind on that thing, do we know how much it weighs?

Great feature. Weird use of the lower storage area. I think the Dimond Marquise is my favorite frame out there. They look so clean instead of the normal yard sale hanging off of bikes set up for race day.

Is that a Velcro strap hanging off the back of his arm pads to keep him “buckled in”?

That's kind of what I thought. Not similar, but it reminds me of when TJ was running arm pads that I'm pretty sure were soccer shin guards ~10 years ago.

Butyl-tubed tubulars? Dude, hand in your Slowtwitch card.

Other than that, absolutely perfect.

And now like what Revolver makes with their cups which have a back support. Let’s you really lock it. Though I’m a bit weary of getting my elbow slightly stuck if I suddenly need to grab some brake.

With a mantis position this is obviously desirable but with less-tilted bars I sometimes like to shift the positition of my forearms in the cups a little.

That is what I think along those lines. Not buckled in, but supported
