Cool - saw on Insta that you were loving it but missed that there were two!
Indeed. A few WW changes to come on the rim brake one; and I'd like to try and find a 58cm SLR version to try... but that's all a different story!

Looking forward to seeing them. I’m of the opinion that for most people on regular roads this sort of bike is pretty much ideal.

This is a problem in its own right, as it turns out:

It's built into the DA front mech - see pic below:

I wanted to run 12-speed Campag Super Record disc on it (which I also have on review) but I couldn’t because the frame will only take full length outers and has no cable stop - the Shimano setup gets around this, but Campagnolo doesn’t have the same solution.

Well, at least I learned that Shimano has a stop for full cable housing at the derailleur, even though I can’t really see it in the pic very well. I’ll need to have a look at that next time I have a 9100 setup in the house. Thing is, I’ve never had occasion to use it as this is the first bike I’ve seen without a stop happening well before the derailleur. And as a Campy guy, omitting such a necessary piece as a simple cable stop makes this frame a non starter for a mechanical Campy (SRAM too I suspect) build. Seems like a huge oversight on their part, or maybe they just didn’t even think about a mechanical install very hard, or at all.

Very much an afterthought, IMHO. A simple cable stop would have been easy to add in, but I believe they basically intend the bike to be setup with electronics.

Damn shame too - the 12spd Campag kit would have suited this really well...
