Frameswap after a friend broke her 2020 Argon 18 Nitrogen Disc S frame racing a local crit. Plus sorting out the di2 mess. And the colour matching mess, and the ugly headset. The Koba frame is designed for FSA ACR Cockpits but even if the rear brakehouse and shiftcable are routed normaly internal under the stem, the front brakehouse comes out of the forkshaft under the topcap. This requires a proprietary expander, proprietary stem, proprietary topcap and proprietary handlebar. All of these parts are ugly, heavy, expensive and out off stock everywhere so no thanks FSA! The Deda DCR System seems much better so I drilled a 5mm hole and ''adapted'' the fork to DCR system.
