This is a normal post Okay, having not built anything like this I'm confused.
Where do the two cables go that come from the ends of the aero bars? Beyond squashing them into a sort of z shape near the headset. Are they additional brake controls, or what?

This is a normal post aero/tt bikes
have shifter buttons on the tri bar ends. You'll note its electronic shifting. Plus hyrdo disc braking.
You'll also note that when he's threading the cables there's a bloody great open space just in front of the bottom bracket. there's where tri athletes hide their mechanical doping.
Gets wetsuit, sprints for sea.

This is a normal post Looked like cable disc brakes to me.
Oh, what the shifter buttons are connected to some kind of wireless transmitter in the stem area?

This is a normal post i'd have to rewatch.
don't think wireless though. You're right on mechanical discs though.
if you've got an aero bike you;ve got too much money and fear hills

It's SRAM wireless shifting. You can see him testing the shifters with the wireless controller on the bench at 9:00.

The brakes are TRP Hy-Rd hybrid mechanical/hydraulic disc brakes, with a hydraulic piston at the brakes which is actuated using a mechanical cable. They provide some of the advantages of hydraulic brakes (e.g. self adjusting pads) but you can use them with non hydraulic levers, like the compact aero levers fitted to this bike.

This is a normal post Aha!
Yeah, on the second watch through I thought 'hang on, mineral oil and a cable??'
