I want to fit the grips before posting more pictures, any idea how to easily fit the ESI end cap on the handlebars? The ENVE inner diameter is way too small to fit the end caps...
EDIT: got it, had to trim off some of the plastic on the end caps
The bike looks....amazing IMO
A sram pg-1030 11-36 cassette, weights a ton, but its for everyday riding.
Also, this showed up!

Not allowed to show hubs, but the front is a 15mm thru axle and weights 103g, the rear weights 244g
MSC Koncept Carbon Di2 - 6955g
Leichtkraft Team Carbon - 6868g.
I had a short stop at the LBS and hung the bike on the scale: 9,6kg with heavy wheels.
Cant wait to weight it with the handbuilt set up tubeless with XX cassette and KCNC rotors.
The saddle is......surprisingly comfortable. Honnestly I havent had any pain or anything bad with the saddle yet. A few mods are coming to save weight: lighter front 15mm skewer, lighter rear skewer, carbon saddle.
As I said, 9,6kg as it is.

Fwiw, my ENVE bars have a very sturdy construction. I doubt they would do worst then alu bars in a crash.
Finish is nice, weight is OK for the price I paid. Now I need to figure out if it will fit my ENVE seatpost correctly, and if it will be comfortable/reliable

I have ridden the Ikons but not extensively and not on technical trails with roots etc. Here is what I can say so far (keep in mind im not an experienced MTB rider and have only ridden 2.1 tires before).
First time on 2.2, they absorb the small bumps better then my racing ralph 2.1
the rolling resistance seams high, harder to go fast on the flat VS my racing ralph
good grip so far, they inspire confidence.
Good grip in corners too.
Grip on steep frozen soil hills was absolutely flawless (also a matter of technical skills I guess)
I will post more comments when I have the chance to ride them in my single tracks with roots, rocks and loose ground.
Hope it helps
