Love the forks! Awesome work.

Front brake outer does look a little short and the one running down the RHS of the headtube looks a little odd, but these are easy fixes.

Normally I tend not to like very large frames, but this at a 61 looks absolutely amazing.

the color of the cables is fine but the cable length looks sloppy

How'd you end up running the links for the brake cables through the top tube? I've heard that it wasn't possible. Did you use regular housing through the TT with links on either side? I have the Purple Chameleon and ended up doing a no-drill Di2 build. I contemplated getting links for the brake cables, but decided against it based on what I saw in the forums.

Some updates:

S-Works Power Arc Saddle
Dura-Ace 9100 pedals
S-Works Carbon Crankset
Quarq DZero for Specialized
Zipp Sprint SL Stem 90mm

Some of the cable housing needs to be shortened since dropping them stack 1cm, but I haven’t gotten around to that yet. Comes in at 7.7kg. Thinking about some Roval 50s in the future to lose some weight.

I didn’t. I ran regular housing internally and links before and after. A little extra work but not terrible

How do you like the Power Arc saddle? Do you happen to have any comparisons to the normal Power?

I really like it. I started with a regular Power a year or two ago, but it was too flat for my liking. I then went to a Fizik Aliante, and preferred the shape more, but missed the cut out. The Arc is the perfect combo between shape and the cutout.
