I was afraid you would say that... lol

Thanks for replying!

BTW, here is a picture of my TCR.

I am taping the bars as soon as I finish the gearing.

Cheers

Cool. Ill be interested what you make of the stem, I was told they are very heavy and flex a lot.
I wanted to fit a compact chain set too but couldn't get a retro one, I don't ride it very often as i'm to busy with work and kids.

Does anyone know if that fork was sold on it's own separately. I have a cadex 980c and have seen some with the same fork as that, but mine came with an aluminium one.

Use a pair of MTB period cranks and leave the granny ring off? I was doing this years before 'compact cranks' became fashionable.
