    I did Sir . Got a fair deal from the LBS, offered me a Di2 specific frameset and Di2 upgrade kit, so I took the bait.

Maybe the tips of the levers line up, but in no way am I concerned with it.
    The majority of bars are designed so that the rule of thumb gives a position in which both drops and hoods are accessible and usable. Not all, but most. And like all rules of thumb, it's a starting point and you should adjust to suit from there.

    I've seen lots of bikes on BF where people have tried to create a completely flat bar to hood transition on bars that weren't designed for it. As a result the drops end up at a wacky angle. In the above example the levers are too low on the bars, meaning there's a lump in the bar to hood transition which will press on the rider's wrists when he's on the hoods.

    Serious "race" heat. Question, where is the cassette? I can see what I think is the hub flange but no "teeth" profile.

    There are 4 cables but you can't see the other 2 because of the angle of the picture.

    Didn't install it yet at that point. Was a little lazy and wanted to see what it all looked like together.

    If you look really close you can actually see one passing level with the bar resting on the wall.

    What - you don't ride with an 11-11 cassette like everyone else?

    With the Q-rings you don't need a cassette. They're *that* good.
