I'm immensely confused by this build, but I like it. I'd love to see it with a different bar setup, but hey, it's a TT bike, apparently.

Confused? I raced time trials on it for six months. not massively fast but managed a 23:45 for a 10tt. which I'm happy with for a first season.

Any issues with pedal strike?

thanks - the main issue i had with it was flex. trying to climb any sort of incline on 101" gear made it flex like crazy!
