    Use a side load cage on the lower down tube mount.

    I second all on the Di2. You’ll want it on all you’re bikes now...that’s not a bad thing!

Plus it’s great to see what gear you’re in, exact percent of battery remaining, and you can program your shifters to do whatever you want them to do. The “extra” shifters on the top of the hoods on my Tarmac are programmed to control screens on my Garmin.

    But most importantly, that is a beautiful bike!!! Enjoy!

    I have a new bike coming. It will have Di2. I guess I'll have to figure out how to properly rue.

    Sounds like you have to upgrade your car then so it’ll match your bike. Stick shifts are for grandpas.

    Hey now! I’m no Grandpa! Grandma, maybe, but definitely no Grandpa. I love stick shift in the car but Di2 on the bike. I’m complicated like that.

    Wait. It automatically shifts? I'm still getting used to indexed shifting.
