Moth Attack Cyclocross/Adventure Bike

Need to fill that adventure bike/cyclocross hole that is in my heart. All parts have come in and I was able to get it ride-able by the end of July. The Stages crank arm doesn't clear with the giant rear tire clearance so I have a normal crankset in the mail. Chain and Di2 have been situated and shift correctly. Bars have been shellac'd and twine added. First iteration is done! X2 slips so now in the market for an X4 or Paul boxcar! Need to wrap the chainstay and get some Di2 grommets. Added link to radivist write up in the stage details!

What chainring bolt covers are you using? Those are the last pieces I need to have my cross bike totally dialed. Also this build is beautiful

I am using some absolute black chainring bolts that are specific for shimano. I had to put washers on the back as well since I am running 1x.
