    You could also extend the fork steerer and use an OD stem with a threadless headset?

    Following needs to be taken with huge grains of salt...

    Spoke to a Shimano rep and 12sp Dura Ace and Ultegra will be announced in June this year. With usual OEM only for 2022 models with availability of loose groupsets in Q2 2022.

    New parts will likely be available through "other channels" but strictly taken, we can expect consumer availability in Q3-4 2022. As there is already a waiting list being built op for "official dealers".

    Roll out and models will be the same as current generation, but due to semi-conductor crisis, there might be a delay in Di2 variants. Also no insight on rumored wireless stuff.

    So actually nothing new...

    Zipp Sprint stems are a sin and so are the bottle cages, they eject everything that are not Specialized bottles.

    Sadly I have both on my Supersix, I really need to look out for other cages....

    Exactly what I am looking for in a bike these days.

    I'm not really a fan of branding at all, or at least the heavily visible kind or overly designed with whatever acronyms sprayed all over.
    The Enve kit is a bit much, but next to the Black Inc and the Specialized S-works carbon finishing, I really have not found anything that looks nice but also ticks off some things I do need.
    Which are a sb carbon post and an ergo (not aero) carbon bar with “internal” di2 routing, shallow drop and 75-80 reach.

    Almost finished!
    Next step will be paint.

    I have been looking for something similar for ages. Have only seen it recently on the Cube Nuroad.

    Cube does sell these aftermarket and there are 2 versions:
    one with a light mount
    and without

    I plan to get the latter and combine it with some VO smooth guards. My only concern is that I would need a piece of alu under the guards to support the "rack" from rolling. Can't really seem to figure out what is doing that on the Nuroad other than the thin Curana guards.

    In other news, I decided to get the 12 degree Specialized S-Works SL stem over the Extralite.
    Not keen on the Specialized branding so it will be painted to match the frame design.

    Still need to decide on bars and post, leaning towards Enve at the moment as branding is a bit more subtle than the Black inc. Other suggestions also welcome!

    Whoops, missed this one.
    I actually would recommend, he's an ex-pro racer and co-owner of a bike shop, but in Belgium so might be a bit out of your way.
