I could not find them anywhere, so I temporarily got an ugly mismatch of prev gen DA in back and brand new Ultegra model upfront. I'll fix this once I find DA brakes.

Any issue between the red shifters and the Shimano brakes, which apparently have different pull ratios?

I have the same setup (eTap with DA brakes) and they work exceptionally well, considerably better than the eebrakes fwiw

Same as every other Specialized. BB30 "natively" or GXP with a more substantial conversion BB.

Not a particularly in-depth reivew, but I have had my Ultralight for a week or so now and can honestly say it has exceeded my expectations in every way. My last bike was an s-works with DA 9100, Zipp 404 NSW, Aerofly bars, Power meter. The ultralight is stock at the moment, but I do intend to add the quarq spider to the s-works crank and change the bars back to Aerofly with 25mm rise. (I have shoulder issues that need more stack but don't like having a high stem!)

Ultralight is lighter (obviously) approximately 800g.
Ultralight is subjectively faster.
Ultralight handles subjectively better, it at least has not lost the handing characteristics of the last model, which was my main concern with the frame change.
Ultralight is subjectively more comfortable. Yet to do anything over 60 miles as yet, but feels good up to that.
Climbs better.
Sprints better.

How much of the above is in my head I do not know, but it is definitely one hell of a bike.

Thanks

Glad to hear that the handling characteristics are similar. I was worried that they would mess with what was already close to perfection. The trail figure looks only 1mm different on my size. I'm leaning towards waiting for the disc bike if they can be built up sub 15 without too much difficulty.

Built up completed : super sagan frame
sram e tap
ee brakes
Roval 40 mm wheels
Stem en Aerofly bar Specialized
Saddle specialized
Quarq power meter
AB oval rings
Garmin 820

Having the bike for over 2 weeks now : first ride impressing : the frame is a whole improvement compaired with previous SL4 . Regidity of the frame at the back is very well , accellerating after a corner is very good , comfort as mentioned by others on bad road has improved a lot . AB oval rings are compaired to Rotor q rings also an improvement . Ee brakes function very well together with S ram leviers.
