Here is are some pictures with latest configuration. Enve 3.4 clinchers with Alchemy ELF/ORC-UL hubs. The weight is down to 13.6 lbs which is pretty darn good considering mid-depth clinchers, di2, and a PM.
Steerer Tube Police: The tube needs to be cut, and the shop set up a very conservative fit that will be lowered.
Photo Critics: I had 5 minutes to grab some shots before I ran out to ride with the last hour of daylight. I just got the bike today. Its obviously not the ideal setting, light, bike configuration, etc.
Fit critics: I'm waiting on a battery mount for the enve zero setback post I plan using. For right now I have to use the standard FSA post with setback.

First brief ride impressions:
Frame: Insanely stiff in a really good way. I'm coming from a Tarmac S-Works SL3, and there is noticeable improvement in the ride. The front end seems to be less twitchy than my SL3, I feel really confident descending.
Gruppo: I'm coming from all SRAM bikes. (Red and Rival) Wow, this group is a revelation for me. The front shifting is just insane. The multi shifting on the rear is really nice, especially when you hit the top of hill and you're about to descend. With this group, I really don't have to think about shifting, I can pretty much be an idiot and DI2 can save me every time. The braking seems to be greatly improved compared to my current brakes. (2010 Sram Red) I really like the hood shape compared to 2010 Sram Red. I also had no issues shifting in long gloves, the larger textured buttons definitely help there as well.
Wheels: Super stiff, great braking, badass looking, but the brake pads are insanely loud with squealing. I assume this is a temporary condition.
I posted some screenshots of the firmware update process on my blog:
Here is one:
For those of you asking for screenshots of the battery setup, here you go:
Here are two videos showing the rear and front shifting.
In the last month I finally got the Antares OO, Enve setback post, and my Stages power meter arm. I also swapped out the garmin mount for a Barfly2.
