All great, but at the moment nothing can beat Mr Zero's yellow one. Keep us posted Vitorzip!

the fork seems too tall for the frame's original geometry. a sid 63mm will fit that frame well.

Wow, thanks. :oops:

Ritchey head angles are relatively steep and handle 80mm very well. I actually went 80mm to stabilize the front end a bit.

I don't recall what year the frame was. 93/94 or so? But that's just a guess.

Force stem is what came with it, should be correct for the age of the bike.

Good stem regardless if thats the direction you're going to go.
