100% on trend here
Curious why the Jets since obviously you don’t need the alu brake track?

They are disc, so no aluminum brake track.

Right. Jet discs are still alu rim + carbon fairing so I was curious why you chose these over something full carbon e.g. the Vanquish.

1.) Money. The Jet's are there for value. No need for full carbon rims for me. Plus the vanquish seem a bit too wide for dedicated road use. That's just me.
2.) I believe you are incorrect. No braking surface on the rim itself as described here:

Fair enough. As far as aero wheels go Jets are hard to beat.

From what I’ve read Jet discs have fairings like their rim brake counterpart. I guess you’ll tell once you get your hands on them! Looking forward to the full build.

Yes, I have the rim brake versions now. Rock solid and fast, wide, tubeless ready.

Progress!
I have a eTap crankset/quarq on the way to keep the theme going.
Really needs some deep wheels, but with 5" of snow on the ground here they can wait til spring.

What is the current weight of the bike?
Those aren't the Jet 6+ disc? I was looking at a pair myself, and wondering what is the real weight thanks!

Ardennes + currently on the bike, I haven't found the right pair of HED 6+ disc wheels yet.

Hey kp, what year tarmac are you building? The reason why I'm asking is I wanted a 2019 pro model (shimano) in a 58cm but they sold out. I like the 2020 color (Blue) but it comes stock with sram. The expert tarmac colors are a little funky except maybe the white. Trouble is finding a frame in my size? Good luck with the build! Cheers..

2019 here. Bought the frame second hand, though I believe it came as a full build with ultegra di2.
