Any thoughts on geometry? The 52 and 54 are negligible in terms of stack and reach.. Guess slightly more toe overlap with the 52?

Current bikes. Shimano hydraulic shifter has a bit more reach than Ultegra mechanical rim brake:-
Cervelo R3 Disc (Stack 555 Reach 378) - 110mm Stem -6 degree - no spacers
Merckx Blockhaus (Stack 552 Reach 381) - 120mm Stem -20 Degree - no spacers

Emonda ALR
52cm - S 547 - R - 379
54cm S- 555 R- 381

The 54 has a longer headtube. They’d likely have the same toe overlap likely. One may have a 170 vs 172.5 crank

Calling all ALR owners and those who have worked with the frameset!!!

I am considering the Emonda ALR frame to replace my chinese carbon frame and I need your help! I intend to swap my Campy EPS 11s groupset to this frame and I need some questions answered. I have seen a few builds with Di2 already, so I know it's possible, but I need some clarification.

I know i may need to drill out the threded hole for mech cable guide routing pictured below, but i need to know what else will be required:
  • is there a hole connecting chainstay to BB shell? - I have looked at frames in a local shop and I know there is a hole at the back of the chainstay where the RD cable can exit.
  • is there a hole connecting the seat tube to BB shell? (for seat tube battery mount and cable routing)
  • is there a hole connecting down tube to BB shell? (so I don't have to run cables from interface outside frame temporarily)

IIRC, the chainstay wall is sealed to the BB. The seat tube and down tube may have had a drain hole, but not a large opening.

Edit: I was wrong, you can see the holes in this photo album ... alr-52903/
