Just to add one more detail about the fork. The Domane fork has an integrated carbon crown race which means you can forgo the metal crown race. In my instance I didn't need the CK crown race which is a boat anchor. The Moots fork requires one so you need to add back the weight of the crown race for a true apples-to-apples fork weight comparison.

I was planning on converting this bike to 12s mechanical and the other bike to SR EPS 12. I have EPS 12 coming in a few days but I'm not sure I'm going forward with putting it on the Crux. Anyway, I went ahead and installed Campy SR on it last night. Obligatory scale shots:

These RDs are fat:

Chain was 220g after trimming and sized by 39x11:

Went iLinks despite my better judgement. Shift housing ended up being 12g installed:

Setting up bars in the stand helps a lot:

Got a little ahead of myself and pressed send before I added the build shots:

Why the switch back to Campy? Bike looks awesome!

I just wanted something different. My intent is to have one bike set up with mechanical and one with EPS. Since the T3 has permanently attached stops it made sense for the T3 to get the mechanical groupset.
