Wheels have been replaced with a spare set while I sand the logos off. Will replace the valves before they go back on.

I did consider going with smaller rotors but the negatives outweighed the positives so 160 is where I’m at.

Subscribed. Bought my wife the Apex version, and it’s heavier than my HT MTB.

Weight was 9.7kg or something around there. Stock wheels will get swapped, will go tubeless as well. Hoping to figure out a way to swap out the ~800g stock cranks for a pair of Hollowgram SLs, too.

Hollowgram won’t fit on a BBRight frame. Your lightest option is the EC90SL.

I’ve seen people say this. Why is that?

I have 119mm, 125mm, 131mm, and 133mm spindles for the cranks in question. I also have multiple chainring options to adjust chain line.

Hell, the EC90s (can) use a RaceFace spindle, which is a direct copy of Hollowgram spindles and 100% compatible.

Sounds like you may very well have the parts needed to make one fit but in the past when I looked into it, the consensus then was that it wouldn't work.

Quick update: Favero pedals now have the Xpedo Mforce 4 bodies mounted and Stan's wheels replaced (while I sand the logos off very slowly), with ENVE 4.5ARs setup tubeless with the 38mm Panaracer GKs. Weight as pictured with dirt but without lights or computer is 7.56kg and most of the increase is due to the Xpedo pedal bodies, c'est la vie.

Awesome bike. Pretty much exactly what I want to build.

What are the negatives? I've been pleased enough with the 140/140 performance on my Tarmac that I think I'll just do the same on the Boone.

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.

Thanks for posting up such a beautiful bike and build. I’m in the process of building one up as inspired by you. Was looking into the J&L TAs on EBay and not sure which model is correct. Is it the one for Cervelo? Or is there one specifically for Aspero.
How are the gravelking slicks 38 on the road? I opted for GK slicks 35.
Cheers

Fantastic build, looking to do something similar with a 50/34 Shimano crankset. I currently have a pioneer power meter but I'm wondering about NDS clearance. About how many mm would you say you have between the chainstay and the left crank arm?

Sorry for the delay in replying to you, I am not sure to be honest but I do know that there are some out there that have a crank based left-only PM on their Áspero.

Hey Irvin, did you figure the J&L TA's out? The 38s are just fine on the road. I run them usually at 46/48 psi so there is some harshness on big cracks in the road but otherwise smooth. The only issue I have is that the tires are 12mm wider than the rim so crosswinds of a certain variety can cause twitchiness.

I have 4.5 ARs and mine look deeper are yours really 4.5s or the 3.4AR? And how much dont they weight with tape and valves?

Thanks!
