HED carbon r1c

hi there,
does anyone have any experience of these frames?
the blurb on the web, by HED themselves, seems to suggest that it might provide an exceptionally stiff ride?
many thanks in advance.

Never tested one, though just spotted one of their frames on ebay and it certainly looks stiff! Though it would look even better if the seller had taken the foam lagging of the seatube and chainstays.


Be a bit of a bargain if it actually went for £26!

me too, that's why i posed the original question!

i reckon it would be too stiff for me though-i like my frames a little on the soft side.
