Thanks everyone, I've been really excited going through the process with Scarab and am thrilled with the near-final result.

The Ritchey fork is pretty essential for this model, allowing the lighter weight 1 1/8 headtube that is visually inline with the skinny tubes (mostly Kansei and Columbus spirit I believe). If I recall it has a bit longer rake than an enve fork, which fits with my road bikes off road mentality.

The alto wheels are actually loaners but they've been great. I put a few hundred miles on a demo Scarab before committing to one with another set of Altos and both sets have rolled really well and seem to be really easy to set up tubeless. These are too deep for my preference.

Should have my cockpit and wheels dialed in next week, then I'll give a thorough writeup of the process etc...

So Wolf Tooth EC lowers use 45/45 bearings? I could not find this anywhere when spec'ing a headseat to use with my Ritchey fork.
