Great bike! Agreed that a white logo Salsa roller stem would be better, but what a nice ride--well done!!

Hi,
So nice!
Also finishing a black Á la Carte, s/n SM765. Which is yours?
No matter the price, that bike deserves the proper stem... sorry.
Cheers,
Chus

Lovely, lovely, lovely - interesting to see your down tube cable guides are different to mine.

Mine as per pic are either side of the head tube, whereas yours seem to a single milled piece fitted to the down tube.

Cracking build - Who said you needed Jelly Beans and Ano colours to make an Ala Carte look terrific 8)

Will have a look as i can't remember the number's and i agree a Salsa roller would be better but are pretty rare over here.I did have the opportunity to buy one but went with the cheaper option :roll:

neebsta your cable guide's are the more common way iv'e seen most ala carte's and i prefer them actually but beggar's can't be chooser's.
