The bike itself is of course quality, but the stem angle is worse than anything else out there

I am recovering from surgery, as I continue to go through rehab I will lower the stem to normal

Lovely, although that ePost doesn't look like it's inserted properly.

It is inserted properly. The Stem is fully adjustable to raise and lower the height:

2/ C-STEM CARBON STEM

The C-STEM carbon stem is designed for the 695.
It adopts its tube shape called “horizontal” so as to ensure efficient cohesion between the cycling station and the frame. Owing to a new patented tightening system this stem is slightly inclinable (from -9° to +13°). This avoids adding many spacers that lessen the bike’s lateral rigidity and the cycling precision.
A moon shaped part to position in back or in front of the handlebar allows varying its position by 10 mm.
Finally its ultra-light carbon body and its titanium screw give the C-STEM great rigidity for a weight of only 160 grs.

I am not a big fan of the look of the wheels, For light wheels: 1082 grams for the set with no weight limits ( I am 6'2" 205), there are no other choices, and for under 3,000.00 usd they are a great value........

I also can't stand those wheels.
For 3000 you can build lighter and equally bombproof wheels.

Not excited about this toupe saddle as well.

Custom wheels at 3000? Lots of options. Just search.
My wheels BTW are Corima aero +. Around 150gr heavier than yours but half the price (in Europe) and super stiff-durable. Astana and other top teams use them.

According to Corima's website they are 430 grams (almost a pound!) heavier, and they retail for 400 dollars less, sounds like a bad deal in comparison. Isn't this site called weight Weenies, You should be on heavyweightweenies.com.

I rode lightweight's and the Madfibers, I liked the way the madfibers rode over the lightweights. I am 6'2" and weigh 205lbs the Madfibers were much stiffer and had a much better road feel than the LW, in addition they were the same weight: 1082 grams, and are $4,000.00 cheaper. If I were 5'9" 145lbs I am sure I would have preferred the lightweights.

Unfortunately there are not many choices for bigger men and sub 1100 gram wheels.

It is easy to say just put on $7,000.00 wheels (that would put the frame and wheel set alone at $13,500.00), you do a lot of critiquing of other people's bikes but I have not seen a picture of your bike??

430gr? Wrong. Search again.
Anyway, I did not suggest you to get Corima. I suggested you to go custom.
You presented your bike so you asked for opinions. IMHO MF wheels on your frame = fail
