The bike is near the 1990 SM1000. All the XT groupo was on my klein attitude (I change the groupo for campy parts
Thanks for the assessments…
When I bought this frame, i have got all the parts, sleeping in my garage
For the Hite rite, it was on the catalog picture…
For the Turbo saddle, I've got one too, but for esthetic and confort reasons, I prefer the Flite
The bike is light, stiff, built for going fast. A bit less fun than the klein attitude. But I think, the modern ritchey bar is too straight. I've got quite the same geometry than the klein attitude, but the mission control, more curved is more confortable.
But it's only a detail.
I don't want to built the bikes with modern items. It's not my (actually) philosophy, not my pleasure for riding.
On other hand, Ritchey welds are beautifull !
Well… it's really not acceptable…
