    Normal clincher GP5000 are a lot easier to install than TL versions. I haven’t tried the new S TR, but they should be easier to fit than the “old” TL.

    Steel Vigorelli seatpost clamp is 33,1mm. I replaced the oem one with this Gusset clamp:

    I later installed a 33,0mm KCNC Road Lite SC7 which has a lip that has to be filed smaller to fit a 31,6mm seatpost. It’s probably designed for a thicker aluminum frame and a thinner post, but it is 9 grams lighter than the Gusset clamp!

    How about G-One Speed in 2.0”, they have a V-guard puncture protection which the 2.3” Speeds don’t have.

    Pirelli Cinturato Velo.

    GP5000TL are a really tight fit. I could not get them to seat properly on Mavic Open Pro UST rims even with ridiculous pressures. Pirelli Cinturato Velo and Schwalbe G-One Allround & Speed Evolutions were a lot easier to fit. Conti GP5000 standard non tubeless were an easy fit also. I would not want to use a tubeless tyre with a tube because they usually do have thicker sidewalls and with a tube will most probably roll slower and be more uncomfortable than a comparable standard clincher. On the other hand Pirelli claims that Cinturato can be used with a tube or tubeless...

    I have narrow shoulders so I have a 40cm bar. It’s just wide enough that my shoulders fit between the drops, so maybe slightly wider than the traditionally recommended width.

    Edit: I had a 42cm bar before these and I think they both have positives and negatives. Wider is of course more stable and gives more leverage which is good for smashing up hill on a heavy gear ratio.

    I’d recommend the Cinelli Dinamo bars, very light for an alloy bar and not too expensive. I have one, I did get some creaking with my X2 stem on rough riding, an X4 stem fixed that. The 2 bolt face plate just can’t grab the bars as strong.

    That is actually cheap enough to try. I was only aware of the Jtek Double Control and Problem Solvers Brake Cable Doubler, but they cost about ten times more.

    Am I seeing some kind of two levers for one brake system? If so, what is it?

    I cracked my cradle at recommended max 5Nm torque. Elita One did send me a replacement. Also the seatpost did get some indentation marks at 5Nm. Maybe my torque key is out of spec, but these Elita Ones are so light that you have to be careful not to over tighten.
