Is the front derailleur work fine with carbon fibrelyte chainring ?
So far yes. Limits had to be adjusted but once adjusted, so far so good. The chainrings come with a note suggesting light pedal during shifts which is something I believe we should all do all the time anyway.

looks great. the fibrelytes are not the best for shifting though.

99% of my riding is in the big ring so this is not really a concern for me but I wouldn’t use these if I were a frequent 2x user or hard on my equipment.

I was wondering how tall are you? I'm just under 6'1(184cm) and on the border between 56 and 58, the only thing is with the 58's headtube I think I would need slam my stem and probably get a -17 stem otherwise it looks a better fit?

181cm. I would guess at 6’1” you’d be a 58.

Thank you, I was going to go with the 58 but wasn't really sure because of the higher head tube. Currently my ridley helium is a med and is a little tight making me run a 25mm setback post with the seat all the way back and 130-140mm stem, probably should be on a large but the headtube on that was 2.5 cm taller then the focus.

Is there any chance for you to try out different frames?
I’m 183 cm and ride a 56cm Izalco Max disc, fits me very well
120mm stem, tried 130mm felt too stretched
Ride the setback that came with the bike

After looking at the geo a little more I decided to order the smaller size it should fit me better, hopefully it comes before the weekend if fedex tracking is right. I probably could have made the 58 work but I would have needed a very negative stem to get the position I need. It comes with a 2.5cm setback post and 120mm stem but I have a spare 130mm to see what works better before I order a new one. I wish I could try out the sizes but no one has them in stock anywhere close.

Based on what others have said recently, sounds like you made a good call.
