Can anyone compare the 9000's right side upshift/downshift lever throw, to that of 2011 SRAM Red?

I've seen those wheels before on Wiggins bike but I can't find them anywhere.
Low profile asymmetrical carbon tubular rim with shimano hubs.

Where can you get something like that? Older and discontinued?

Yep, it's a discontinued item.

If I am not wrong they are the Dura Ace 7850, best wheels ever built in my opinion ;-)
Have 2 pairs of the 7801, more or less the same but they have the nipples in the hub.
Great stuff!

Not really di2 related, but it is in the fabian build video.

What are these holes in his handlebars for? (see attached image file)

Anyone have real world weights on the Wh-9000 C35 CL and C50 CL?

How are people running their FD cable? The anchor bolt essentially has two positions and I can't really tell a difference between the two. It's not even mentioned in the instructions, so I don't know which one would be better.

You should have recieved a small plastic tab that will attach to the front derailleur. That tab will tell you if the cable coming up will be loacted on the inside or outside. One of Shimano tech site will walk you through it, but I found this so confusing.
