No. This is just soo clean with it the way it is.

How often are you guys really having brake / upper headset bearing issues??? The level of hate on the headset routing is lost on me. Same amount of work for the initial build as any internal routing. I get at least two-three years out of a headset bearing.

Headset cable routing is the reason why Pinkbike was down for two days.

It's as clean as it is stupid. Vey clean, very stupid. I'm always switching out parts, whether it's trying a different stem length, different brakes, replacing housing so shifting stays crisp. Speaking of crisp shifting, for those of us not using robot gears, the sharp bends to get around that are going to do wonders for that Rolleyes

I just hate the look of the funky shitty stem. Also do not care for the way the top headset cup looks. Give me holes on the downtube and a press in cup that is flush with the top of the head tube. I also do not want shitty plastic cups or headset spacer which is a huge issue with these bike from what I have read. Plastic cups loose in the head tubes.

From what I've read about Acros headsets people will be pulling them apart pretty regularly.

Show us on the doll where the Tesla and the headset hurt you.

You’re in a safe place here.

Haha. I like them I just don't think bikes need to have the design aesthetic they do.

Also everything PROVA does is amazing! Dude is on another level for sure.
