New thread / IRL experience does not seem to fit the total flop complete disaster thread

Built over the weekend, rode today. I have 40 miles on it, so maybe a couple more miles than in flat pedals in a parking lot? Quick thoughts:

-Very fast accurate shifting. Shifted under full load many many times, never able to mess it up. Shifted FD and RD at the same time while on an incline, nothing messed it up.
-Shift button: The new shifting system/button layout is intuitive. The buttons are very large. My hands are not large, about a medium. I would say, I wish the bottom down shift button was perhaps, a millimeter or two higher, honestly, it's so close that my hands will likely get used to it.
-shifters are comfortable
-Lots of flashing lights!
-This is a top-tier groupset. I will come back after I have a lot more time on the group, so far I am really loving it

That is a beautiful bike. Nice to see WRL finally in forum hands, keep us updated if you have more observations.
I noticed that at least Felix Gall of AG2R was using it today.

Love seeing reasonable sized cassettes on road bikes again.

I kind of want this drivetrain.
• A hi-zoot bike, pretty sweet
• An old bike, more fun than the new one actually
• Unicycle, no brand name visible

Like the wheels, saddle and lack of saddle setback.
Glad it rides well.

It looks like an aluminium frameset?
It's only one thing i got hooked up with. The shifters seems to be positioned for wrist to be in an ergonomic way.
But looking at the brake lever, here comes my gripes.

It looks like the shifters would need to be positioned further down the bend on the handlebar to have a normal brake lever position.
But that might be a cause for discomfort if you ride at "the hoods"?
I intended to show pictures of my bike (my pics will not upload for some reason), which have a good transition from bar to shifter, further, brake levers and bar bend line up satisfactory.
I don't really see that on your setup. Perhaps it's the picture or the angle of the bar!?

Thank you for posting! Nice ride.. How does shift speed compare to 9200 or a AXS RED?

Looks nice. Where's the barrage of complaints that the world is ending due to Campagnolo wireless?
