You're more than welcome mate, glad it arrived ok.
I would definitely recommend trying out a set of compact road bars (although this may well include a new stem as most compact bars are O/S).
I've started using them on my road bike this year and it's so much more comfortable. Not quite so stretched when on the hoods and the drops are comfortable enough to use a lot more.
I'm so impressed with them I'm swapping out the standard bars on my cross bikes for some compacts for the coming season.

Yup...currently working on it as you have suggested.

Quill/ahead converter.
Thomson road stem (a beaut)
RaceFace Cadence Compact bars

erm...and I have also treated myself to a black Sotto Voce CK headset which is on its way over from the States

The modern stuff is sitting very nicely with the retro...and will no doubt make it much more comfortable

Happy days :D

Great bike. I'm sure that you will love it and glad to see that it is getting the attention that it deserves. I have a "quiver" of Ibis bikes including a '97 Hakkalugi, a 2001 Ripley and and '07 Carbon Silk. I've been looking for a Spanky myself. Yours has a great color but I'm very partial to the Yellow.
