Thanks very much guys,,
hi fella the fork weight is stupid light,, it was brought down from 1163g down to a feather weight of 1006grams..
, All the internals have been re-worked and I'll go into more detail in a later thread
The modern schrader valves you see are just that..
.. this was to allow the use of a modern pressure pump
, the alloys used was custom made for this fork..
@ Steve, cheers buddy.. I love the Ritchey made stuff, I remember bitd going to a trade show, and there was a ritchey stand with an unpainted ritchey frame, hung exclusively with ritchey stuff,, I remembered picking it up and
I could not believe how light it was
I really like Tom's thinking behind this
, I've made a frame, now lets make the bits to go on it
The pedals have not been re-worked deliberately to keep the reliability and weight to the target..
The details of the cassette and chain will be covered in the following thread..
Cheers mate, Its changed quite a bit since you last saw it, and is even lighter and more beautiful
@ puredead666 , Every part of the bike since I bought it has been stripped cleaned and reassembled to improve and modify..
I've decided not to re-fresh the parts or frame etc, as it has history and its deffo a rider..
Inspirational she has been , and what a fantastic journey
made ever more fantastic by the overwhelming help and friendships formed on here
