AWESOME! Do you have any close-up photos/a description of your eTap/Alpha X routing? Considering going eTap myself but not sure how it'll look with the blip box!

I can take some pictures. Just let me know if you want some specific angles.
If you are using well placed BTA blib box will be tucked behind so not big aero penalty - if any.

Really appreciate it! The only thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on an eTap group is half-expecting them to release a BlipBox the size of the Di2 junctions; your setup looks much neater than a lot of the other eTap/Alpha rigs I've seen.

It looks like you used the adhesive mount to put the BlipBox directly on top of the stem cover, and routed the cables back straight down below the stem cover? A "POV" shot looking forward over the top tube at the back of the stem/blipbox/extensions would be the most enlightening.

On the stem cover there are holes for the BTA. I used one hole to install the BlipBox mount. I can't take off the BlipBox. To take it off I'd need to rotate the BlipBox 90 degrees which I can't do because of the extension/elbow cup hardware.

Interesting setup! Is that a modified Fuel Cell on your seat tube?

Yup!

All I did was hack off the front with a saw so it lined up with the Elite Crono. I'm still able to fit 2 tire levers, 1 CO2 cannister with chuck, multitool, and patch kit in the cell, and an inner tube inside the rubber cover.

I got inspiration from the custom D2Z storage box for the Plasma 5!

If you want to go 52t 1x with 110bcd, check out Wolftooth or Rotor. I have a WT and a Q-Ring narrow-wide in 52t on my rigs.

That's the largest I've seen in 110bcd (that I can afford) though.

A lot of great looking bikes, and some inspiration on potential upgrades.

2010 Trek Speed Concept 7.0:
-Want to upgrade:
- aerobars and basebar. But, need a wide setup.
- Eventually replace wheels with a little more aerodynamic set

Coming out of hibernation... it's been hanging on the wall (and I've been on the sofa) for 15 years.

I signed up for the Muskoka 70.3 Du so I've got a lot of work to do!

My ride for this upcoming season. 100% customized to my specs. A lot of thought went into this bike...

Well done. Is that custom paint? No desire to ditch the FD hanger? Superb build and execution, so much so, that I would ride it. ;)

Yes, it's custom paint. And Yes, the hanger hurts my eyes too... I actually purchased the Aerocoach Affix 1X aero chain guide for this build but it arrived too late for the photoshoot (the hanger is actually welded to the frame and didn't want to ruin the possibility of 2X in the future just in case I sell it later).

That's a gorgeous build. I love how the plasma looks, and that coloring is perfect

What are some of the details.
Cockpit? What RD, and What was your reason to go with Flo

Running the same one on my rig for lack of a desire to shave the hanger off....yet. its worthless as a chain guide. Way too flexible.

That is a slick ride. I love the color contrast.

Glad I’m not the only one who things it’s a bit flexible. Love the thing for 1x though but for me it’s tough to get it to a perfect fit with how flexible it is.

That is a beautiful bike, and a nice presentation! Do you mind if I ask what kind of skewers are you using?

Original Profile Design aerobar with Zipp Vuka Alumina 70 extensions. Di2 battery is neatly tucked in the extensions. RD is Ultegra Di2 with Ridea Carbon C35 ceramic oversized pulley system.

I've been riding Flo for some time now and use them in all of my builds. I think they're super fast paired with the right tires at the right pressure. Can't think of a better quality/performance/price ratio wheelset in the market.

Believe it or not, this bike came under $6500 as it is on the pictures...

Agree... it's actually pretty useless... but it does looks better (and it's supposed to be more aero) than just the hanger alone...

I actually sent the hi-res pictures to your CM in Facebook in case you guys wanted to use them (for free)... he/she replied, but never used them. My previous project was a Felt IA1 and I used Flo wheels for that too ->
