New (Climbing) Bike Advice

    Now that some suppliers have more stock back I am looking to upgrade my "Good Bike" (n+1). Will be used mostly for weekend spins in the mountains but no racing. Ideally I'd like to upgrade to electric shifting. I'm finding hard to see alternatives to the Canyon Ultimate in terms of value but would appreciate any options on that or recommendations on alternatives in the 3k-4k price point.

    Also any opinions on 105 Di2 vs 105 or Ultegra Mechanical would be appreciated.

    All and any advice is appreciated
