I have a suspicion that Cervelo will be releasing a new very Aspero soon. Pete Morris on the TR podcast mentioned a new gravel bike launching in a couple weeks. His shop sells Cervelo, Pinarello, Santa Cruz and Enve. Pinarello, Santa Cruz and Enve all released bikes within the last two years. Plus, Asperos have been on clearance everywhere for the past few months.

Will we see a launch with GRX Di2 12s?

The Mog is only a year old. They dropped a bunch of new colors last month. I'd be suprised if they launched a new gravel bike. They are however in need of a racier road bike. Especially given they have a WT team now.

Yeap but the new one is meant to be an endurance bike to sit inbetween the Melee and Mog.. Can't remember the name of it but there is a thread on it

If that's true, that's so dumb. The melee is almost an endurance bike (compared to the rest of the aero race bike class it's competing with anyway).

Was in my LBS recently, asking about gravel bikes including an Aspero, and was pretty much told a new one was likely due in next couple of months.

Now torn as to whether to go for a Scott Addict Gravel with 12 speed GRX, which should be available very soon, or hold off and see what the new Cervelo looks like. One thing guaranteed though is the Aspero will be a fair chunk more money for the spec of the new Addict Gravel 40.

Wonder if they'll give it a slacker front end and more length. Van Aert suffered badly at Gravel World's on the sketchy stuff vs Mohoric or Swenson who were on bikes with similar geo to sightly older XC hardtails.

slacker, longer wheelbase, udh, and internal storage. Most likely lighter. I think thats it. Which is fantastic!

Mohorič at 185 cm used a size small (to get the stack low enough) Merida Silex with a 140 mm stem, so don’t think he had much of an advantage on the rough stuff.

So basicly a Santa Cruz Stigmata, or will the Aspero have more aero feautures and less tire clearance than the Stigmata?

I sure hope it will - the Ostro Gravel and Kanzo Fast have been wearing the aero crown long enough in the gravel segment. Given that aerodynamics are core to the Cervélo brand (see S5), I'd be disappointed not to see some upates to the Áspero in that regard. Especially since geometry wise, it was always one of those gravel bikes that doubled perfectly as a road bike, where high speed aerodynamics matter even more.

He clearly did if you watch the race. And even if you compare the 52 to the 56 - vs what he could ride in the Aspero - that's 38mm more wheelbase and 2.5 degrees less head angle. Even more WB if you compare the 52 to the 54. Or if we compare it to what WvA was riding (58), that's still 19mm more WB and 2.5 degress less HTA.

IMO, the Aspero needs to be able to fit wider tires up to 700 x 45 or 50. That's why I didn't buy that bike.
