Currently on a 2014 S-Works Roubaix and looking to upgrade to a 2018 Model S-Works Roubaix. Was going to do a Sagan Suoerstar colored frame, so have to build up from that. Wish I could do a Tarmac, but the reach and stack aren’t obtainable for what I need vs the Roubaix and will not cause more neck issues. So, anyway, I prob wanted to go eTap over Di2, and was going to do the disc brakes, but not a deal breaker. Do you guys have any suggestions for parts, or should I just mirror the stock eTap Roubaix’s parts that specialized builds out for their bikes they sell?

@Vandit: I have also been looking at Etap vs di2 - leaning towards di2, because of the smaller hoods, hood-top buttons, syncro shift option, single battery.

Re parts - I guess it all depends what you price limit is and how light you want to go :-)

Thx guys. Actually ended up ordering a custom S-works Tarmac in Sagan Superstar color. Did a Zipp aero sl-70 bar, Zipp stem, Etap, quark Power cranks, ee brakes, and Zipp 454 wheels.
