It looks really good with the 25mm-deep rims.
Making me think whether I should have gone with 25mm instead of 35mm rims on my Focus!

Thanks...
He means uber stems like Mcfk (what I have on my SL6), THM Tibia, Extralite, etc.

I prefer the matchy-matchy value of an all Fizik R1 series cockpit and saddle on this build

Hey, thanks for turning me on to these stems. I never heard of them, but I like the Extralite stem. Anyone here use this stem? Unfortunately, it seems there are no merchants that sell these stems in the U.S.

@Rich_W: how did you do the shifting cables arround the headtube? Do you have a picture for me off that? Best Regards, Maurice, The Netherlands

Not sure what you mean. Are you able to view the pictures in the thread? Cables are routed in standard fashion (not crossed). Using standard Shimano housing and stainless cabled. I run large patches of 3M paint protection film on the sides of the head tube.

How were the Grand Bois tires compared to the Compass?

About the same. Neither pair lasted very long. Been running Corsa Graphene 2.0 since

Nice bike, I also have a 2019 Trek Emonda SLR (H2 size 60).

Are you happy with those Bontrager XXX bottle cages?
Mine don't seem to clamp enough around the bottles, and therefore are noisy.
I use Elite Corsa Bottles.

How are light-bicycle 25mm’s? Do you get brake-rub out of saddle?

Brake rub? Hell no. These rims are super stiff considering their weight.
