The device that you are using to hold your junction box (under the stem). What is that?

A modified version of Specialized's Di2 junction box holder. I sculpted it to fit to the ENVE stem.

Good looking bike! I really like that frame. My next will be a Moots Routt. If I wasn’t so fond of all things Moots I’d definitely build up an Open.

I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on the one by drivetrain after you’ve put some serious miles on her.

It's amazing. I have 1x on all my MTBs so I am quite used to it. You couldn't pay me to use a front derailleur any more.

What do you have against gatorskins? I commuted on them for 3 years without one flat. Let me know if you ever want to race and I'll show you how they work. :welcome:
