Current build is below and it's almost done save for the HED Eroica's I have on order which haven't shipped yet and I'm currently stripping the branding off of the Stan's.

Still waiting to see one of these in the flesh - love the way you've got it put together.

My thoughts exactly. Paint jobs have been pretty boring for a few generations but this one just looks proper.

Wonderful bike! What is the max clearance for the frame? I guess you will switch to some mtb system pedals?

I would not go beyond 40mm tires but it also depends on the internal width of the rim you choose. On my Avions with a 22mm internal width, the 38mm GravelKing inflates to 38.

I am planning on using my Favero pedals but with Xpedo M-Force bodies so that will take care of my MTB power pedal setup.

I'm curious to what a "Gravel" bike is supposed to look like.. I thought it was just a road bike with clearance for larger tires and more focused road geometry? I like how the bike industry has shaped our minds to what something is supposed to look like..

Not attacking in any way, just curious.. I think this bike looks amazing that would rip on the road and the off-road, which is what gravel "Racing" was founded upon..

It will look nicer if you can get valves with the same size.
What about rotor sizes? Have you tried 140 rear or 140 front/rear?

I agree. The bike industry has done a wonderful job of convincing us what a certain type of bike should look like and how it should be used.
