Thanks to Jordan, Zachboring, Joshatsilca, Jim@ERO and everyone else whose opinions helped me through the process!
Thanks for the kind words everyone!
The original inspiration was Zachboring's P3 with the Aduro/P5-6 fork:
Sourced the parts from ST Classifieds and eBay. Jordan's opinion re: the Magura simplified the fairing choice. The beard is standard although minor sanding of the bottom was done to perfect the fit. The only custom bit is replacing the metal cover for the wire entry into the downtube with a carbon fiber piece (plastic will work as well) which allowed a little more forward position and lateral play for the wires.
A discussion re: Sub-9 vs Super-9 by Joshatsilca and Jordan, and multiple threads of 1080 vs 808FC convinced me to shift wheelsets:
The extensions are a lesser known brand (Planet X, if I recall correctly) but there were available alternatives of Profile Design Stryke carbon and PD T4+ aluminum, both of which would have gotten the angulation needed. Elbows on the pad, although I could use forearms and grip lower if necessary. Andrew Coggan and AndyF of Alphamantis:
This is a really good question that I've contemplated for a few months. I love my P5; it is truly a remarkable bike, capable of faster speeds than I am able to reach. I've managed to drop 13 minutes off my bike PR this season through hard work and can't help but to wonder if things are truly greener in the beam pasture.
Pros: it's a fast stiff bike
Cons: they're having trouble delivering consistently
Pros: they understand their difficulties and are working to correct them.
