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
So off with the Club Roost/Zoom set up
and on with the Control Tech/Ritchey
As usual did a little compare the Control Tech/Ritchey stuff weighs 14oz / 400 grams combined
The other stuff... A little more...
However the new setup didn't work at all with a shiny seat post!
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:
I hated it initially, but now I'm 50/50 on it, I'll ride it tomorrow...
