Final (for now) update here. After playing my own frame doesn't fit swap around game, I've landed on this iteration of the Trek 510. Currently sporting 700x35s. I'm still playing around with the cockpit a bit which is why there is some extra cable and no bar tape yet.

As I get some time with it to ensure I like it, I'll be dropping some money into the following upgrades, likely in this order:
  • front rack via p clamps
  • Fenders
  • Powder coating
  • New wheel set, likely with a dynamo
A sincere thanks to everyone for your advice throughout the process. I was able to meet up with my friend to swap over all the components from the speciallissima to the trek and feel more confident in making some changes myself in the future where specialty parts aren't required.

This may not be my forever bike but I think it will be a good entry into this end of the biking spectrum after having a exclusively ridden grocery getters and kid pullers.
