It is getting interesting....Ostro, Aeroad or what ever Specialized are bringing out end of the month.

Especially as I m looking for frame only

Looks promising.

Does anybody knows when they will start shipping?

And currently, prices are only in dollars. Is it going to be a 1-to-1 conversion to euros?

No, that's not a typo

USD MSRP for the full bike seems rather too low. Is it excluded VAT?

780g is for the Flicker colour way which looks to be just a clear coat over bare carbon. I'd have thought the 2 painted ones will be 150g or so heavier!

The CyclingTips review had it at 875g, with over 400g fork. If the 780 is true, wow!

First production run is expected to begin shipping mid - late November according to their marketing e-mail.

I'm getting one this December. I'll get the complete bike with SRAM force WiFi , Cermaic Speed Pullie, power meter and 45mm wheels for $6200 and flip the wheels and drivetrain and wait for DA 12-Speed. My buddy, associated with Factor, already ordered his.

That was a supriseing one.. Rob Gitelis actually was just talking about how Factor still believe in press-fit not long ago in an interview (as it's known to be more superior than threaded ones if done right); now it seems they also just admit that they couldn't nail the manufacturing?..

For that amount it's an easy choice, I'll take one too! Frame only option of 4000?
