First try for this new build 8)
Frame is a 19.5", bought on here some monthes ago
I knew that the fork steerer was a little too short for an aheadset built, it is indeed :oops:
The gap between saddle and stem height is really too important.
So on the hunt for other parts, a nice threaded headset, quill stem ....
First way, a classic build, Ritchey and XTR ....
I could also go on a catalog built, some Syncros and titanium parts, like this:
