Very nice looking setup.
IMO the two most important spec choices, frame tubing/construction and type of hubs are not detailed. These are maybe the most important details for a good SS bike.

Thanks for the responses.
I do understand that quick links for 3/32 will depend on the chain / cassette / freewheel. A 1/8 chain requires a 1/8 quick link, cant use a link for a 3/32 chain.
