The night before the 2010 Interbike Las Vegas show opens the show room floor, Quintana Roo let slowtwitch.com have an early look at the Project Illicito. This prototype frame is based on the CD0.1 but has an interesting element missing.
"We are committed to creating the 4th generation of triathlon bike. This project is the starting point in the design process," said Brad Devaney, chief engineer and designer of Quintana Roo. "The bike we are showing is not a production bike. It is part of our future development."
The dirty air now can't find the seat stay anymore.

We appreciated this white wall at the booth next door..
Even from the drive side of the frame you can still see the oversized chainstay.

Devaney reminded us multiple times that no release date is set and that Illicito is one of five current prototypes being tested and further evaluated. But they did want to display Illicito in Las Vegas to show that the brand is not sitting still.
