That Ceramicspeed decal placed for rules compliant photos is a very casually deliberate touch.
This one?

Hah - glad to know I was confused. Also seems Alaphilippe runs the seatpost flipped.
Yes interesting setup. The SL6 seatpost is D shaped so must be custom offset?
0* Offset post, available directly from specialized. I have one on my SL6

I'd noticed your 0 degree Offset post in the other thread - it just looked almost a +10 degree post in the pic!

No pictures to post just yet, but all remaining parts to finish the bike have been ordered so shouldn't be too long.

I did pick up a set of new Roval C38 Disc wheels at a great price so that's helped things a little... Updates as build progresses soon!

Is anyone able to confirm these are the BB adapters I need to work with my CeramicSpeed BB30 Bearings that came with the frame please?

I'm new to this kind of thing and thought it would be a lot easier to find what I need to use considering how popular OSBB/BB30 Specialized framesets with Shimano HollowTech II Crankset combos are? Do Specialized or Shimano not sell them as an aftermarket part? Thanks

Those are the adapters included yes. Shimano doesn't have any adaptors for anything. Specialized got the ones included as spare parts too.

If you're planning on using a Shimano crank, then perhaps install a proper BB30 insert and sell the BB30 bearings? I first tried adaptors (both Spec and Wheels MFR), and was not pleased with fit... gaps between the BB shell and adaptor, crank arms not equidistant from chain stays, etc. I then tried fitting a Praxxis Ceramic BB30 insert which resulted in a 2mm gap on the drive side cup when fully tight. Pass.

Finally went with the Ceramic Speed BB30 Insert. Fitment is PERFECT. According to the folks at Ceramic Speed, this is the setup Quickstep and Bora H both use. It's pricey - but the right solution IMHO.

Thanks for the heads up - i’ve gone with your recommendation and purchased the same as you have. Hopefully it arrives early next week so I can get it built up.

Thanks!

It’s done - for now!

Waiting for a few bits to finish it off (bottle cages, pedals, carbon PRO Stealth saddle etc) but it’s built and ready to ride! Really happy with how it’s turned out. Thanks to some of you guys for the help on wiring and bottom bracket, glad I went with the full CeramicSpeed bottom bracket instead of nylon inserts.

Went with the new XTR rotors - they look better in my opinion and are lighter than Dura Ace ones in 140/160mm sizes with the same tech.
