Thanks! Really a great bike.

I’m 6ft 1inch and it fits perfectly. You’re taller than me. The 59.1 would be the better size just based on your height. Hard to say for certain without actually seeing your measurements and the bike’s geometry

A couple more questions. I'm currently building up a 2018 Protos with DA Di2. I notice that you eventually set yours up so that both the rear brake cable and EPS wire are going through the same hole on the right side of the top tube, and you used heatshrink to keep the cable and wire together. Is it possible to fit both a brake cable and shifting wire through that top tube hole? Could you post a close up pic of yours? If it's not too inconvenient.

Also, how did you cover up the unused cable holes on the downtube? Where did you get the flat plate-like screw on thingees to cover the holes up?


Thanks.

Sorry for the delay response. I am running both the electronic shifting and brake cable through the same hole but it did require a little filing to make it work.

Regarding the unused lower shifter entry point, I used the standard port covers and painted it white.

My local bike shop had some in the spare parts bin.
