So I just installed Etap on my sprint and I'm struggling with the front der. First the low limit screw was too long and rubbed on the crank. Realized it wasn't doing anything so took it out. Even with no low limit set the der. won't shift far enough inboard, in the low gear it rubs on the inside of the cage. Then it's incredibly difficult to set the high limit screw correctly, it either over shifts or undershifts. I've messed with the alignment and the height and nothing seems to work.

Has anyone struggled like this? I'm using a quarq riken with 11spd rings so I think it should work.
I had the exact same issue. What I ended up doing was changing the spacing on my crank. I believe I added a little bit of spacer to the drive side and that solved it. Once I did that it was the easiest setup on a front derailluer I've ever done.

I am on eTap and no issues with my FD though. I am on SRAM Red arm with Quarg pm. When I install the FD, the will align it slightly towards my rear wheel. This is make sure when I shift from small to big crank, my crank arm doesn't hit the FD. Also no issues with the adjustment bolt. Takes a bit of time to set it up though, so be patience, it'll be ok.

My gripe though, is that sometimes if my cadence is a bit too low, I am on my 4th cog (from biggest) and I shift to my big crank, the chain may drop outward, towards the crank arm. Not much issue, just had to back pedal to get it aligned but it's very annoying.

Note quite finished yet, but rideable for the first time today, my 2019 Sagan Sprint.

Still have a saddle / wheels to deal with as well as figuring out how much more I want to cut the steerer tube.

As pictured 7.6kg... not bad for aluminum.

Yes it's the standard bearing cover, but it also comes with a smaller one. I think that one 10mm and this one is 15mm, but I have not measured.

Don't love the "plastic" look -- will probably look to swap it out with something a little more aesthetically pleasing.

Was hoping for something a bit more...vibrant, unless that blue is a similar shade to the sprint from a few years back. :P

Someone just posted some photos of the lower, new colorway in the Allez Gallery thread. The silver logo is actually hologram and the fork is a rainbow sparkle hologram.

Update on my Sagan Sprint. Have some LB wheels on order that will hopefully be here next week, otherwise it’s pretty much complete.

That looks awesome with the tan walls.

After complaining and cursing Spec/LBS for not being able to tell me when or even if an RHC framekit will be available, i stumbled across one in a small onlineshop that isn't even bike specific. Price was even reduced. No idea how this shop got the frame, but they're legit and i pulled the trigger.
Listing said it comes with bottom bracket bearings. i guess they're BB30 and i need to buy adapters/new bb to run my GXP quarq cranks?

Regarding the BB, yes it comes with bearings pressed in. I popped them out and installed this to work with my Shimano cranks:

Personally prefer a threaded BB anyway.

Thanks!
I'm running the wheels mfg bb30 gxp bb in another bike and while i like the concept of the threaded halfs, i'm not happy with the enduro bearings. they don't last more than 3-4k km, are expensive and because they're having proprietary measurements, i can't replace them with quality bearings.
BB30 to GXP with adapters is also not my preferred solution, but at least you can find high quality bearings with 42x30x7mm for normal prices.
