Is that external brake cables but internal shift??? It can’t be. It would be seriously retarded as it’s mechanical shifting that typically sucks with internal routing. It would be sweet with external shift cables.

As for the usage this bike is going to serve: reliable climbing grand fondo bike.
Multiday marathons & not at leasr riding the Marmotte this summer... :?

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?
I live on the parcours of Flanders.... have another bike for that. And yes, equiped with KingKages :D
Like i said SramRed 11sp is coming, as are the Schmolke wheels 8)

Still undesided on which tires. Gp5000 or Corsa 2.0's gumwall... i'd really like the gumwall look, but what about rolling res. & cut res. ..... if the 2.0's are better in that respect then there predecesers, i'm in!

That externally routed rear brake cable is an interesting design decision. I'm guessing it was to save weight and it probably won't have a large aerodynamic impact, but it does look out of place to me given that all new frames now have that cable routed internally.

Most 'striking' part for me are the Schmolke handlebars, the carbon on these is so... hard to explain. Remembers me of the carbon on motogp/superbikes. Don't knw why thow. 😂 More pictures to come.

Why GXP cranks :(((( One of the few PF30 bikes out there still and you put a crank combo that comes out to like 150+g heavier. :(
