Still undicided:

Etap or DI2?
Handlebar/stem?
Pf30 BB?
Gumwall tires as good as GP4000?
Tour of Flanders proof bottle cages?

All tips are welcome!

I have a 2015 izalco max...
personally I don't like the look of gumwalls on carbon rims, therefore you are not allowed to buy them 😃
handlebar and stem: I have the 3T egonova ltd carbon bars and 3T ARX tean stem (stealth version)
bottom bracket: I used the praxisworks adaptor, but also consider C-Bear and Kogel
groupset: I'm on campy record mechanical, so can't really answer this one
bottle cages: I'm using arundel mandibles with camelback bottles - best combo I've ever had!
good luck!

My vote is for Mechanical Red or Etap. Arundel cages are supposedly really really good but I have never had a set. Extralite stem and whatever handlebars work for your bike fit. I would also like to submit my vote for veloflex tires or Vittoria Corsa g+ (Both gumwall.)

Are those Schmolkes available with an XDR freewheel? Right now (at least for the next 24 hours or so) it would be foolish to order 11spd eTap, as the next generation seems to be right around the corner. However that seems to need the new freewheel.

For some weird reason I'm intrigued about dabbling into Di2 on a build right now, so I might just order D-A.

Normaly my frame should arrive Tomorrow! 😀

But im still doubting which groupset to take.

Is it stupid that im leaning towards Red11sp? In my opinion, its cheaper, lighter, in stock, and i like the black color crank. Or should i spend the bucks and go AXS?
And still DuraAce DI2 is haunting me.... But its 2weeks a wait...

Is this going to be an all rounder bike? Climbing? Weight weenie?
IF you want/have to keep up with trends then go AXS, but 11sp etap has dropped in price and mechanical red can be bought for a steal. I personally would suggest Dura Ace Di2 and wait the (2) weeks.

I'd go with Deda stem and bars and carbonworks cages. They are stupid light and work extremely well. I'm a Campy guy but of the choices you presented I'd roll with DA Di2.

Just rode the flanders, and doing la Marmotte for the 4 time...

I tried all groupsets and of those too, I would take da di2... and King ti bottle cages for the flanders, light and the best. Did you end up with those wheels?
