Advice on next bike please - £3k

The masses thoughts on the following would be appreciated please

i need a new bike (roubaix cobbles ovailsed headset on old bike so is toast - plus all componenets are well worn)

so based on the following set of requirements

Sub 8 kg

Ultegra Di2

Tubeless wheeles & tyres (with / on bike not requiring upgrade of tyres etc)

28mm tyres + in width

Discs

£3k - will go out to £3.5 but would rather not as have extra £500 earmarked for wahoo and few other bits ie bottle cage etc

To be used for longer distance sportive, (did Paris-Roubaix last year) heading to Flanders this year, plus have lot of sportives lined up.

Have considered Rose GF4 Disc / Canyon Endurace CF SL DISC 8.0 DI2.  

Also considered UK based options from Ribble and Planet X (have owned numerous of their & on-one's bikes) but not convinced on either due to reading some shocking rider reviews on the laters carbon offerings being flexy.

Your suggestions please, and thank you.
