Very nice. I wouldn't describe a $2000 frame+fork 'ridiculous value' however.

Is the rear brake operated by the left lever in that setup?

Point well taken ;) Let's say a solid value, relative to the marketplace.
And nope, the left lever controls the front brake.

The rear brake and RD cables are crossed. FD is downtube routed on the FTB.

Of course, should have worked that out. Crosses in order to produce a shallower bend at the bars for the RD?

I have a Van Dessel Gin & Trombones and have been wanting an FTB frame since they came out. However, this build is not particularly to my liking but it's just a matter of aesthetics and everyone's tastes are different.
