I'm leaning towards the burgundy... I'd swap my Quarq over for sure, and then maybe run the Apex for a bit and upgarde to Force AXS in a few months :D

Nice! Sounds like a good plan.

I was thinking that the bike needs a SRAM AXS Mullet setup, so use the Eagle AXS backend with Force Controls..

If the Open Wi.De and the TTT Exploro had a baby the Aspero would be it. I just ordered a 51cm frame in mid olive/dune from my LBS and plan to use some nice parts off my super six for the build. Please PM if you have a used 650b wheelset you think might work.

Congrats!

I have a set of 650b wheels that while I’m not going to sell, I can recommend, the Stan’s Crest MK3 has served me well, is very light and internally wide. Nice setup.

Saw the closeups or renders of the teal frame this morning. Looks to be speckled with light teal throughout. Looks lush, and if it looks that nice in person then it'll be a super hard call. Rare to get 3/3 frame colours that look premium. Love that they're not using frame colour to differentiate build options.

Thank you very much. Did you take this picture in person, or is it from another source? I ask because teal is not yet available per my LBS, which I think is correct (Competitive Cyclist is selling the frame but reports that teal is coming later). Perhaps it is now being released so I can get it.

I called my LBS about the Teal frame and asked if he had any idea of how it looks under light or if he had seen one and he texted me that picture. I asked about availability and he said it looks to be unavailable but put the order in anyway. This morning I got a text that it may be in next week. Fingers crossed!!

Just saw the low end version in Burgendy. In all honesty I was expecting to be blown away but came away thinking its just another gravel bike. The bike was heavy and the color was really muted.

The mullet setup is awesome. Saw the 3T Red AXS release version of it and it looked mean!
