Pretty hot bikes!
I knew this one was coming. And I did think about EPS and Bora, but I really couldn't get my head around components made in Romania being any more of a fit than those made in Japan and America. Since it seems we're surely talking about geography rather than function or technology.
But, in all seriousness, the Di2 hoods feel better in my hand and that was really all that mattered to me. Is there really a debate that EPS functions better than Di2 or vise-versa?

i think centaur, veloce and lower end wheels mainly come out of Romania. (If it really manners)

What color bar tape/hoods? Blue, black, white?

Old school frame/fork = old school hot - but none of the rest.
lemond = not hot
Switch out the bar tape to black. I dont luke the aesthetics of thise bars. They are too ergo for my liking. The cages are a different blue than the blue on the frame so that is a no no in my eyes. If you're gonna match up colors they need to be exact, otherwise it looks horrible. So I would swap those out for black cages as well, though you could do white if you wanted.
primov8's Boras are very hot. I did a lot of hand wringing.
Although I'd strongly consider a C59 Italia in the blk/yellow colors as well when that time comes.
But can't go wrong with Enves either. Anyone looking for a top tier wheelset with custom options, Enves would be my first choice. The 65s I previously had for almost two years were great wheels, durable and trued only once after hitting an unavoidable pothole. I sold the 3T wheelset that I had on the De Rosa last month and the Enve 6.7s w/ Tune 170 hubs would be the perfect wheelset to replace that.
