The new D2 shifters are visibly more angled that the D1s. I’ve just measured the very bottom of the levers centre to centre and they are…42cm!

I’ll get a photo at some point and post it up.

As someone who has ridden campy 13x a lot over the past 3 years, both in chunky gravel and very light / all road configuration. I am not sure than 13s is what you want.

As much as I love my setup with 42s or 47s for real gravel rides where range of gear is the key. The 13s is simply not good enough yet as an all-road 1x. Jumps are still too big for my taste, I don't think I will consider 1x on an all road bike until 14s.

As far as tires too, if you're going to ride corsa pro 32mm, you probably don't even need a Fray, why not go for the Melee?

Same here. I ride a Melee with exactly 20mm of spacers. The Fray happens to be 20mm taller than the Melee AND I intend to run the 13sp Red XPLR when it comes out so UDH is required. Just waiting for more info on the group and general availability and I'll be switching. I also plan to run 34mm road tires on a 27mm internal rim so I'll be close to / over the tire clearance Enve recommends as the 34s will end up wider than 35mm on that setup (Melee is listed as up to 35mm clearance but i know people have fit wider in there).

1:1 like myself.

I will built it up with the new RED levers and Force XPLR 1x. Will then switch to the 13s when it is available.

There are two of us! I'm currently running Force 1x with the 48t aero chainring, the XLPR RD and the 10-44 cassette. I love the setup, I don't find the jumps too big / unmanageable as is. I'm sure the 13sp will be even better - very excited to get the full info on how Transmission is being adapted for road.

Has anyone in Europe already found a reasonably nice price reduction for a framekit?

So far the best I have seen is EUR 5,524 on Ciclimattio.com. That's still pretty steep. Was hoping to find a much better deal eventually :D
