Thanks @mike, actually this is more practical and estetical build then WW.
Already rode about 2k km on it, almost all components works well.
Have to change saddle from Gelu S3 to S1, and tyres from High Road 28C to GP5000 25C.
This is https://www.strava.com/activities/6926589853 sample ride.
This is not a race bike(and im not a road racer) but very pleasurable endurance bike. I like it sooo much ) This bike motivate me to ride more and more)

I can highly recommend this model and setup.

Btw my weight in equip is below 65kg.

The chainrings that you tried you mentioned that only the integrated solutions was found to work best, were you ever able to confirm if the carbon ti's were the newer/latest version?

I have a similar build to yours with the THM cranks, just need to decide on the chainrings and your experience is valuable!

Hey, @overl0ad,
This is MT4 FM on my pictures )
There are one trouble with Magura - M5 unstandard banjo bolt. You need Magura hydraulic hose (with banjo and bolt) if you want to use it with 9270 levers.
is there a reason why you didn't go with the MT8 SL FL?

so just to add to the collective knowledge base, i got a response from Magura on this:

The only difference between the MT8 SL & MT8 Pro in Post Mount is the colour. THe SL is "Mystic Grey" and the Pro is silver/Chrome. However the Flatmount version has a black caliper that is more akin to that used on the MT4 Flatmount version.


i did also stumble across this bif of info on the MTBR forums.

The calipers are the same one piece design with adjustable banjo fittings but the "8" gets more machining so less weight and bulk.
Also, The 4 and 6 get steel hardware VS alloy for the 8.

@overl0ad, Magura has one piece design caliper, there are no joining bolts like in two piece design.
Only pad retention bolt is different alu or steel.

Small review.

4k km distance, 50k m ascend, 130h in two months.
I'm 174cm height and 62kg weight.

Time proven components for me:
1) Extralite SPD-3 road disk hubs with XDR freehub - light and just works.
2) Darimo T1 Loop seatpost and Nexum handlebar - very light and comfortable, hold saddle very gently.
3) Duke Baccara SLS2 Ultra 36C - light, stiff clincher rims.
4) EASTON Bartape Pinline Foam - light, durable, comfortable and well stretched then wrapping.
5) Gelu S-1 - light, durable and comfortable with prostatic hole.
6) Voxom FH12 bottle cages - light, adequate cost and aviability, hold 750ml bottles securly.
7) Rotor ALDHU cranks 170mm and chainrings 52/36 - very light, stiff and works shift perfect with DA9200.

And of course the main thing for me is a Aethos frame. This is my best road endurance bike. I get so many fun and pleasure with it at last two months.
Thank you so much, Specialized :)

No issues with the cranks and the rest of the DA9200 components? I'm thinking of ditching my DA9200 crank for the ALDHU and just starting my research. Hoping it might be a good alternative for a bigger rider (95kg).

-Thanks, Todd

@tmanley, no issue at all, works flowlesly :-)
I use ROTOR ALDHU cranks and chainrings, DA9200 FD, RD, Chain and SRAM 10-28 cassette.
Btw Token Bottom braket is very nice too.
Cheers.

@Bianchi10, braking perf is so individual in feelings :-)
There are no any problems with this rotors for me, but i cant recommend it, price is too high and nothing special. You can get Hope or something else with same performance but much cheaper ;)
