    Super happy with it so far (~500 miles in)

    It's basically replaced both my road bike and my mountain bike...I've gone on long road rides with it, taken it on several gravel rides, and tried out bikepacking with it. The Future Shock does a surprising amount for comfort on bumpy descents without feeling like it's power robbing like a conventional fork when climbing (plus you can lock it out if you want, though I usually don't bother.) The component spec seems worth the upgrade over the Comp Carbon, particularly the wheels. I was a bit worried about the 1x spec as I'm not the strongest climber, but I've not really had any issues even with steep grades. The range is quite good. Only issue I've had is that the rear derailleur hangar seems to get tweaked easily.

    ~1000mi in, no ragrets

    I came from a 2020 Roubaix so it's not a *massive* upgrade over the previous bike, but there's a lot here to love - the Roval wheels seem pretty bombproof so far, and come fully ready to set up tubeless with the Pathfinder tires. I did the tubeless setup myself with very little hassle; I used a compressor because I have one, but it was similar in difficulty to setting up a modern MTB tubeless (so, not very hard). The drivetrain is pretty stellar - the steps in shifting are larger than a 2x11, but that's the tradeoff for 1x. If you're coming from Di2, prepare to charge more frequently, but I very much prefer the tiny derailleur-mounted battery over the internal Shimano setup. Plus, it's wireless out of the box! I've mostly ridden roads, and I've not noticed any downside vs. the Roubaix - if anything, I've gotten faster! SWAT storage and all the mounting points really round out a package that could easily be part of a 2-bike do-it-all stable.

    Yes!
