I'm still sad the Ritchey foam grips have been ditched as they compliment the rest of the components so well, especially the bar you hate so much!

Which I'll gladly take off our hands if you swap it, seeing as back sweep and extra wide is just my style!

This is looking great tho mate. Nearly there now too!

Haha! I have been tempted to replace with the 3TTT Prolight bar I have - only thing stopping me is the champagne colour and matching the Ritchey theme!
Another Thing is, I have the same set up on my Bianchi and one reason why I ditched the grips is that wanted to try something a bit different

Alright, fair enough.

I'll let it go!
If I can find an ITM silver alloy Seatpost - (one which has the same blue EU style ITM badge) (and which I’ve been looking for for ages) I’ll probably let the Ritchey Prolite go and use the 3T
I’ve also got another Ritchey WCS Nitto Seatpost too to go with it.
But let’s see. I can’t wait to get this finished and to ride it!

A little update
Cables all in, derailleurs and brakes due to be set up tomorrow

Sorted the rear cable inner out

Other touches are Matt silver valve caps and awaiting a deep blue Tiso seat bolt from Roly!
Have to touch up the decals on the bars and the stem top with black model paint

Then Sunday I shall take her for a spin

I think @raidan73 has convinced me...

White or grey suede ? Grey matches the grips!
