Stunning thread! I just read through the whole thing. You are a true retrobike master. I'm feeling unworthy now. :D

I decided to revisit this build with the cast off Ritchey bars from my Klein build

I also did a bit of stem shopping and came across a really nice CT 1 1/4" being offered by GTSteve, it was trade bait, but Steve flogged it to me

Cool!

So off with the Club Roost/Zoom set up

Image

and on with the Control Tech/Ritchey

Image

As usual did a little compare the Control Tech/Ritchey stuff weighs 14oz / 400 grams combined

The other stuff... A little more...

Image

However the new setup didn't work at all with a shiny seat post!

Image

So I dug out a black one, happily this is also lighter than the one I was using, But needed tidying, easy job

Anyway I won't bore you with every detail here's a twilight shot:

Image

I hated it initially, but now I'm 50/50 on it, I'll ride it tomorrow...
