Or you could go with something like this, if you weren't set on a fillet-brazed bullmoose.

Some more parts on today. I was going to modify the bars as they feel quite narrow but sized them up with another set of bars and they were the same length, I think the Magura levers make them look smaller than they are. Also threw on a regular stem and bars but aesthetically and ergonomically it didn't work. Noticed the big ring is a 50 looks a bit dinner plate but it'll do for now, should help with the car park dash :) . So chain to scrub and then cable up. I have white red and black stuff(modern though :? ) undecided as yet.

The Ritchey bars I have are only the second set I've came across in a year, albeit it wasn't a meticulous search. The ones above are fairly common, in fact I think bankrupt bikes have em this side of the pond.

Thats lovely but I imagine even rarer than bullmoose bars? Any more details?
