Swapped out the KS lever for a Wolf Tooth because one clamp
Is better than two.
Big 760 35mm alloy bars and stem not required for this build - swapped
In renthal carbon and a svelte stem to match @31.8.
Had a non-boost Absolute Black Oval ring in the parts box - better chain line (pretty close to CS though).
Swapped out 2.4 Minion for lighter 2.6 Forekaster because front grip is overrated.
Swapped out men’s heavy prologo saddle for women’s specific wide saddle - on crazy sale at pushys mid year.
Fidlock bottle because bugger all room in Medium frame for a normal bottle - even a side loader was jamming into the TT.

That’s about it. Wheels are impressive, offset design and an engagement that sounds and feels like my DT set. Brakes are overkill but feel better than any Shimano brake I’ve tried
