Headset will get changed at some point , although the headset nigel came with , may have been the original as it is a 1" Ritchey unit.

For now until I either change it for a Xt unit or something nicer, I think I'll clean it up and re-fit.

Time to press that sucker in.

Looking forward to seeing how this one turns out .
FWIW I have a '93 Team Racing made from Tange (Ritchey?) Ultimate Superlight tubing , that I hope to get back from the paintshop tomorrow . By some strange coincidence , I'm going for XT/Ritchey build too :)

:) thanks , the rebuild has been relatively easy and straight forward enough so far, and most of all enjoyable .

Still a few parts to source and make decisions on , torn at the minute as to refinish the frame in the 89 colourway :? think a few bottles of red might make the thinking a little easier :)

Hi mike , I decided to go for satin black as opposed to the original metallic, as I think I'm going to change the paint to the white and green colourway as in the 91 model later this fall.

Although I'm quite liking the stealth look its throwing out at the minute :)

Not sure if the cranks, or more so the chainrings sit right on the Xt crank arm, as these were off the Xtr chainset originally off nigel
