I just see the picture( they didn't appear on my mobile ), and the Zirbel.
I'll shamefully copy this on my next build !

Making turns around it...
It would be possible to have a left and right blip for shifting, like the road etap.
And maybe clicking both to pilot the reverb AXS, instead of a third blip.

i would go with Zirbel on the right for shifting, and a single blip on the left for dropper ( at least its the setup have :) )

unfortunatelly i didn't shot photos (with decent cam) around the tyre \ frame, but it should take 2.3 according to Trek

Where is the blip box mounted? Is it inside the Gemini stem? Do they somehow adjusted the bar combo for the Zirbel + Blip?

Normally color matched components are a bit much for me, but it looks like you did pretty well in terms of finding matching parts with similar anodizing.

Also, if you have money burning a hole in your pocket, check out Berd spokes.

Thank you for your reply. I am also planing to use Blipbox with the Zirbel Twister. I have already bought the AXS Blipbox. I am yet to order the Zirbel. I just need to think up where to place it and thus the cable lenght needed.
How is the Blip attached inside of the frame? Did you glued it in? How do you reach the Blipbox button? Do you need to use the button often?
