What is a good step up?
(I understand this might be opening up a can of worms for people who do not like Specialized, but let's keep it "scientific" more or less)
The frame is really responsive and stiff, the geometry is great, no issues,
I guess the initial thought was that I, as we all, always want to look for another great thing,
(and also the SL3 has a BB86 bottom bracket and most new great compact cranksets seem to be BB30)
What are your thoughts and why?
(include responses about the frame itself, or frame plus gearset and why,
it would be great if someone has axperience with Sram Red and found something new that is better... (Super Record might come into the discussion, but of course the $ difference is still a factor)
There is of course also the issue of wheels as a crucial component, but I suppose since they are replaceable,
let's keep this factor to a minimum or as an added note...
What were your transitions?
And there are lighter.
Groupset ... 11 speed and electric shifting obviously have
some functional benefits.
Then there is the subjectives such as shifter ergonomics and action. I prefer Campagnolo and Shimano to SRAM.
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!

That's not a bad comment. Point taken.
Any strong opinions on getting power meter? quarq seems to be VERy expensive, any alternatives?

Not sure on your statement about "most great new cranksets seem to have BB30", though... 30mm axle maybe, but that's not necessarily BB30.
That is a good clarification. Actually I didn't research the bottom bracket issue well enough.
I the questions is GXP vs BB30 and the pros and cons of both.
