It was six months since the final ride on my R3 so difficult to make direct comparison. A bit harsher ride and it sure feels fast. Happy with Q-rings and Di2 but I probably need to buy a tool to align my rd hanger because on struggling to get rear der. adjustment to 100%.

Of course the Sprinter isn´t a tire that gives a smooth ride. But in this case I also ran Sprinters old my old bike sometimes, so it´s not down to tire choice only.
@ drmutley Thanks for the tip. Note that I re-routed the cable according to your comment (along the underside of the stem), much cleaner look!
The double sided tape is "Tesa Double sided tape for outdoor use" which I bought at my local home improvement supermarket. It held up fine all season, water from washing didn't affect it at all. Will definitely use again for next bike.
BTW, I have sold the frame and will hang the components to a new (more traditional) frame next year. Didn't like the handling and the harsh ride compared to my previous bike.
Its hard to compare and give a good verdict on brakes when stopping power is "bottlenecking" due to something other (carbon wheels in this case) than the calipers. I´m sure the PX brakes stops good enough for most people, maybe not "Shimano-good" but at the price/weight of PX they are very good value.
