With a passion Neilll. But in my defence the parts you've collected aren't your everyday syncros parts, more like hen's teeth. Syncros works with this project as it's what they were specced with (although not to the extent your going too). I could waffle on about what I think about the brand and their parts but I don't intend to alienate myself on this forum to the extent that I would!

That will look nice,

Since the stem has not got the noodle, don't forget a hanger ;)
Though they do look better then the older flat topped ones.

Also if you've not had one of that style of syncros post, be careful with it, the top clamping is not very strong and you can flatten the top part and rocker part. Though that normally takes a good bit of riding to get it done (they tend to creek after a bit as well). Still wish I could find my original post, it MUST be somewhere.

To be honest I will probably not use this one as I have a '91 stem with a noodle.
