I hope the specs are like the Opsis...I just put mine back together because I really liked the specs.  75/70 19 inches and a 13 rear end.  I could get behind this one.

Nice kitty!
Remember, grammar is the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse", and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse".

I just started getting into flatland stuff about 3 days ago and suck so far, I blame my sh*tty bike and lack of practice.

Damn,go figure they would be prototyping a new flat frame right after I purchase my 2010 DK Opsis lol....only thing I would do differently from the Opsis is a full 100% chromoly frame (front and rear triangles) and maybe offer different sizes like 18" 19" and 19.5".I myself at 6' tall wouldn't want to ride a frame with a TT shorter then 19" and the flat companies need to realize that there is more then just a bunch of midgets riding flat (no offense to you shorter dudes).I like the seat tube angle and don't know enough about bikes to figure how a different angle would change the feel/performance of the bike (anyone care to clarify for me?).

Another thing I would do is keep the frame reasonably priced.The cost of flat frames and parts these days is absolutely rediculous and uncalled for (not everyone has $400++ to dump on a frame alone) especially when we start talking about quality.

Just my 2 cents.

I would say just make an Opsis frame...but full chromoly.  I like the specs on it.  They could make a straight up, no frills frame for a reasonable price if they did this.  Oh, and I would say make all the brake hardware removable.
