Ooooo, I have to unsubscribe me from this thread. 😉
Silver, @anidel. Lots of silver for this bike
ahaha you're right, but ahead stems in silver? maybe white?
but it's a good idea...looking for them
Ahead is difficult as this bike has small diameter tubes. But as you want ahead, go for the 2nd gen Ritchey Classic. Or Thomson. I had a silver Eclypse on it and it looked superb.
Yeah wanted to go ahead, I know :)
You wanted ahead to put 31.8 bars? If only for ahead, try chromed ahead. I have a nice steel eclypse mountainbike stem but I assume these exist in -17 road version. Need 25,x bars tho.
Mostly to fully go neo-retro on this.
It will look good anyway. Can't go wrong with a frame like this.
If you want 31.8mm bars, Nitto UI-12 is available in ahead version from planetx:
But it’s 80 degree (planetx webpage states 71 degree but this is incorrect), and they only have the 100mm ones.
That clamp is sooooo ugly...
Got a 17 degree stem. Looks nicer.
White tape is coming.
The side view.
The original stem I wanted to use had a higher stack height. This 3T has a lower one, hence the spacers are off at the top.
White tape arrived.
Not my best wrapping and cable cutting, but I'm happy,
well kinda. I made a mistake with the front cable. Won't let me put the stem up/down as I had hoped, cut it too short and realised too late :/
In the end no project thread.
This is the finished beauty
I'll snap the obligatory No Ball Games pics downstairs later or tomorrow after a cleanup.
well done, @anidel!!
