Wheel height complements the S series frame.

Is there a reason why you have a Pirelli on the rear and Turbo on the front?

Good spot, it was actually all I had in the garage so not by design.

I used to use the specialized turbo tyre on the Enve 3.4's as they seemed very wide and the rear would rub the chainstays if i used a 25c GP4000 for instance. The Specialized are 24c which helps.

I have the same bike (albeit in 58) with the same wheels. Great combo! Rides great and fast as hell! Enjoy!!!

I've just picked up a second hand S3 frameset, so this thread has some great ideas for the build.

Did you have any problems with the eTap FD? I've read that on some pre-2018 S3's you can't mount it low enough to reach the chainset properly, especially if you use a 50 tooth big ring. What chainset are you using - 52/36?

Also, what's the total weight of your build?
