$3k is a good deal. But no disc and it has old school Ultegra.

I was looking at these bikes (Emonda) too. Speciically the Émonda SLR 6 Disc or the SL 7 disc.

Has anyone rode SLR and SL frames for comparison? I'd ride a 60cm and curious if the carbon is noticably stiffer in one vs. the other. Bigger bike w/tall head tubes often times don't make for a stiff front end.

These are basically the same price ($5k) but on the SLR the frame is ~500g lighter but has weak wheels compared to the SL. So, better frame vs. better wheels & Di2.

SLR 6: manual shift Ultegra & Bontrager Paradigm Comp wheels
SL 7: Di2 Ultegra & Bontrager Aeolus Pro 3 wheels
I think i mentioned this somewhere else, TrekTravel is selling their SLR7's out of Madison,WI. https://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/bik/ ... 81884.html the price seems somewhat negotiable. Maybe you can get a set of wheels too.
