I will go with what I know has tested faster and you can go with what you think is maybe better.
I will be doing this set up on my next Tri/TT build and it will be faster than standard brakes.

Don't know the answer to this, but couldn't you make a very neat ISP head with an expander bolt system to retain it? Like a quill stem or a fork bung.

Specialized with a wind tunnel
Really? So they have verified, in the windtunnel, that by putting non aero objects that cover their aero headtube to about 1/2 of the frontal are like in the pic - you go faster??
Or have 'people' read marketing department blurbs and drawn their own conclusions?

If he is designing her own stem, he could add a little hole in the stem that acts as cable stop as many old CX bikes had
weight (a tad)
level is so classic,
Provides a resting position or descending position, or both.
Slope wins narrowly at 3:2. So slope it is (sorry I answered for the fashion weenies). That said, the looks of a deeply sloping toptube is funny or EVEN DISTURBING.
Therefore, I am going to go with a moderate slope of approx 30mm. This way, I will enjoy the size flexibility (never mind the size inflexible ISP on top), the resting AND descending position (in fact, if the road on my descent slopes downward by 30mm over a stretch of 530mm, then I would effectively have a "virtual level" toptube at that moment of time. Isn't that brilliant?).
For visual effect on the degree of slope, I could spend a few hours to come up with a drawing for you, or you can just imagine the outcome of an SS Evo banging an EPS wearing a condom made by the Chinarello guys...
Glad I got this out of the way.
So that my work doesn't go to waste, here is a neutral redition of less slope...
Jooo, my theory is that a frame, generally needs to be the center piece of the machine, visually. On a larger bike, that's not a problem. On a small bike, it is. Of couse it's all aesthetic and subjective.

(sorry for the sloppy photoshop)
I have two of these set ups that Rob sent me. A shorter lighter version and a heavier longer version.
