  1. Sweep’s seem outdated…really. 6.5? Even on the riser? Probably wouldn’t be too bad…..but they are also trying to ask the same prices companies that are very well established….and are proven….like ENVE, Easton, Salsa, etc…. Little ambitious for a brand we’ve never heard of doing stuff that was done 10 years ago.
