Second time I've recommended this, this week: https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/road/aeroad/aeroad-cf-slx-disc-8-0.html

Road discs are here to stay, so why not embrace that on an aero bike? With the Aeroad above, you already have the carbon (disc brake) wheels too; so upgrading the group is easy. Doing it the other way around i.e. rim caliper brakes but higher spec like Di2, would mean buying a new frame, wheels, shifters & calipers!

I've just got an Endurace with mechanical Ultegra; but I can put an Etap upgrade kit on that for 1k by the time I get around to it. Everything else is already there.

Just saw a 10sp Spesh Transition on Facebook for 1k. Includes 40mm front and Zipp disc. And last year Giant were dumping their end of season Propel with Di2 for 1995.

Pop goes 3k for a used but race ready TT and a brand new road bike with Di2.

Options options. Smile

(I do like the Canyon as well though, problem is trying one out for fit)

I used the Canyon fit calculator, and it was spot-on tbh.
