Finished up the build tonight. Hardest part of assembly was getting the di2 grommets into the frame.

A lovely, balanced bike. Did you go with custom geo w/ less top tube slope? Really starting to believe that the RSLs look better with standard headtubes and a non-Moots cockpit. And I loved the the feel of my Moots stem and post. Might try a Firefly stem on my Compact SL at some point in the future tho.

Anyhoo, kudos on the build!

Looks great!! I agree with beeatnik, it may actually look better with the ENVE finishing pieces versus the Moots.

I went with standard geo after riding a RSL demo bike this past summer. The Vammoots RSL frame in size 56 looks to have the least slope in the top tube. I did see a line up of a 54, 56 and 60 all beside each other and the 56 looked the least extreme in terms of top tube angle.

I may cut down the steerer a bit more, but I always like to get a few months riding in before I do that. I had the Enve components from my previous bike with exception of a 27.2 seat post which I ended up trading with a forum member for a 30.9. The internal wiring harness was also taken from my previous bike and fit nicely. The tolerances where pretty tight on the BB area when using the Chris King PF30 plastic sleeve but the large down tube made for lots of room for the wiring junction.
