Maybe of interest: the frame geometry of the V3 frame.

Absolutely lovely bike. A custom frame from Rob is definitely on my wishlist in the next few years. I particularly like the carbon ISP he’s done on yours (and others) frame. Do you find the bike retains the lively but comfortable ride steel is known for, or does the carbon ISP make it feel more like a typical carbon frame?

I’d find it very hard not to go for a full steel setup like this one he did recently:

Landyachtz 1146 Ti Custom
Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod
Dean Vador
Specialized S-Works Enduro 29
Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon

. . . and a 500lb KTM :thumbup:

Difficult question. I don't have two bikes that differ only in frame material (otherwise identical frame geometry and all components). I'd say that the geometry is key, then the components.

Campy skewers work really well, plus they’re black.
AMAZING BIKE! It could not be more perfect. Well done!

True. I have several Campagnolo wheelsets and the skewers are very reliable.
I have a Zipp 202 wheelset which I'm using now on the English V3. I haven't decided yet which wheels will be the primary setup.

BTW thanks for all the positive comments :-)
