Ribble CGR SL, any experience?

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I keep looking at these - https://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/ribble-cgr-sl/ - as a friend of mine keeps talking about trying to plan some big gravel adventures while he's in the UK next year. I would be looking at frame only (possibly with the level 5 integrated bar/stem to get the cable free look) and transfer all the parts from my road bike viewtopic.php?f=10&t=151800, possibly change to a 1X setup (I already have a 42T single ring to fit my Quarq and a spare 10-42 cassette) with a XT Di2 rear mech.

Looking for feedback from anyone who has one, how suitable are they as a road bike? My riding is likely to be 80/20 in favour of road so the road manners are important, I know it'll give up around 200-250g against my Genesis with the same wheels so should still be a sub 8kg build.

There's a handful of owners on Reddit.

Could be worth comparing to the Cinelli King Zydeco frameset, which should be a little lighter. Standard seat tube insert.
Curve Grovel ti.
