Where does the name come from?
The Rubicon is a river in northern Italy that defined the border between Rome and the provinces. Julius Caesar lead an army across it (going south...) in 49BC and 'the die was cast'.

Casts a big shadow down the years, that Caesar chap. A few choice quotes too.

"A point when reached from which there is no going back".

That's my favourite Rubycon association.

Crumbs, thick & fast Subchassis for the LP12. There never has been so much going on for the dear old deck in years.

Sounds an interesting one Andrew. The big question is..... will I be 'forced' to upgrade yet again? I've put aside 5p just in case

Nobody will force you to do anything. You must decide on the evidence supplied.

5p might be a tad optimistic though

VERY VERY interesting - certainly quite different. I presume the metal is bonded where it is not screwed together.

Keen to hear an independant review (happy to offer my services for that) and pricing.

I really hope it delivers sonically.

Just spotted the two holes - presumably they are alignment holes for the bonding.

Not screwed anywhere. Arm and bearing on different layers of ally.

Pricing not confirmed yet but north of 500.

We expect it to sound better than the Keel.

And yes, an independant review is lined up already, but thanks for the offer.

That is a very clever idea andrew, are the seperate laminates water cut?

is that an aluminium armboard?

Why do you expect it to outperform the keel?

You say there are no screws so presumably the armboard screws are just locators until the armboard glue sets?

Looking at the last pic it looks like the armboard screws are permanent as the armboard looks like it is on standoffs.

Mmm... pricing seems high though

All CNC machined.

The energy transfer is designed to seperate the stylus from the bearing unlike the Keel where it is all one.

Sorry yes, the aluminium armboard is screwed onto one of the plates, the bearing bolts onto the other one.

Remember this is a business venture not a group buy. I have to pay for indemnity insurance, packing, CE all that kind of stuff. It is also labour intensive to build and finish. Its also CNC machined just like the Keel and the Keel is how much?

Perhaps they are rivets of some sort?

Anyhow most certainly a different take on the subchassis & once again another very professional finish.

The pricing has not shocked me, I expected it to be in Greenstreet territory. If it turns out cheaper then great!
