Nice looking frame. Crazy seatstays though. I wonder if the idea is that they flex and give a more comfortable ride at the back, or help the rear dig in on climbs?

Hi Stinus.
Nice Plexus you got there! Lovely.
I just picked up one myself today. Do you by any cahnce have some info on the difference on the plexus framesets over the years... mine seems to be older than yours. Its got a 1" steerer.

Have a look here...
