OK guys, the build has started.
Lots of different technologies on this bike that I'm not used to so its taking a little longer than I thought. None of my other steeds have discs or aheadsets so my old brain is taking on a little re-training
Got the forks on but it looks like the steerer maybe about 3 mm too short. I've clamped down the topcap and the gap looks about 5mm from top of the steerer to the top of the stem. Unfortunately this means that I don't have a spacer underneath the stem as I would have liked so I'm keeping an eye out for another set of forks in the long term. Until I get the wheels on, I won't know whether having the stem that low is too low for my riding position. It may be that I need a much longer steerer tube but that's not a priority right now. The bike will survive light work for now until I work out what I need.
So far, the forks are on, the seatpost and saddle are in and the chainset, stem, handlebars, shifters and rear mech are on. Next up are the brake servos, front mech (when I can scrounge a 31.8 shim from my LBS), chain, pedals, grips and finally the wheels and cable routing.
Hopefully it won't be too long now.......
