Very nice paint job. Inner headtube looks very clean as far as what I can see. Keep us posted.

Well that's my point.
I got used to specialized/mcfk_aero 2 piece combo, 10cm, 38cm.
And roval rapide cockpit is available only in too wide sizes, with too long delivery date.

The stock 300mm seatpost is quite light at 143g. No need for a Darimo if you're not looking for a zero setback.

Arrived today…
Roval Rapid Cockpit 100mm x 400mm
Weight @ 315g
MagCAD Garmin Roval Rapide Mount Black
Weight @ 15g
The stock Garmin mount that comes with the cockpit is more than twice the weight @ 35g so not using it.

I haven’t had a good night’s sleep since my S-Works Tarmac SL8 arrived without the cockpit last month. Finally, I can build it. 😉
