Amazing how classy it still looks setup as commuter.
Could you post some detail pics of the dynamo cable routing? Did you manage to do some of it internal?
Cheers!

Thanks! Its my long distance bike now :)
Dont have any pics but the cable for rear light enters the same hole as Di2 routing on DT all . the way through the frame and exits at rear mech.

Ah yes, with Di2 you will have more space there... I'm getting a CFR696. Will see what I can do about the routing.

Do you have the front and rear rotor of 140 diameter? How is the stopping power of it?

Front was 140 and I wasnt impressed with the power, swapped for 160 and now its so much better!

Very nice bike. Do you think the frame would take a 48T chainring?

Easily, it can take a 50x34 double.

Gorgeous bike. How or where did you order that frameset? I'm going to build my first road/gravel bike and I'd really like to have this frame and fork.
Cheers!

Rad bike! How's has it been treating you? I'm thinking thinking of getting this frameset. Is yours a 56cm? Do you prefer 700c or 650b?

Thanks.

thanks! Feels like a totally new bike in terms of ride quality and I kinda regret not starting out with the dynamo.

I totally agree with you on the 650b - I recently acquired a bike set up that way, and it's been a revelation in terms what terrain I can attack in a single ride. I too want to rebuild the front wheel with a dynamo hub, at some point. Also: are Selle SMP saddles all they're cracked up to be? I've seen a few people become converts and say that they regret not riding them way earlier..
