what about a black steel salsa or ritchey with noodle and white decals? a syncros might be to plump...as it is the case with the Titec.

The rest looks 8)

ahead stems with noodle or internal cable routing are really rare...

have one custom made, it's worth it!

really nice! but - it really deserves a better stem and that cable hanger is not good with an ahead set. it will put pressure on the top bearing each time you use the brake. you need one that is clamped onto the steerer tube if there's enough steerer tube left...

Now... How can you know this also... :shock:

Steerer tube is little short now, but I have other fork coming from painter soon with really long steerer tube.

Also searching Syncros stem... :roll:

and, correct decals are on the way :wink:

na, no syncros please. looks too clunky on that frame imho. a salsa or ibis (pic stolen from coffeemug on mtb-classic.de) steel ahead would look nice or if you want aluminum a controltech. or an ibis titanium...
