  • Or custom steel stem...

    What size is the steerer?

  • Custom you say……..

    1.56” steerer, hence the issues in finding one.

  • Making a steel stem tthat fits 39.6mm steerer is definitely doable. Other option is finding a 1.5" stem and reaming it to 1.56"?

  • See, as I’m not well versed in machining I didn’t even think of that.

    I guess that’s possible?

  • Yes for sure.

  • Nice, I’ll keep that as an option.

    In the meantime ordered a 110mm stem, figuring that slightly too long probs better than way too short.

    Also spent the am cleaning and polishing the frame then doing what I could In the build.

    GRX 400 with a 11-42 cassette, use seatpost (thanks @Turkish) with a Romin Evo and then some TRP CX9’s

    Itching to get this finished

  • And done.

    Some gentle persuasion with the B Limit screw to make the RD reach the 42, but it works.

    Looking at options to get the headshok looked it, bottoms out super easy and no lock out.

    :(

    Does it have an air valve under the crown?

  • nice !
    shallower silver rims would be more to my taste, but that's a very satisfying build

  • Great build.

  • It does not, but have a hook up from an FB group to get it looked at.

  • Cheers bud.
    And Same, found these basically unused to 60, so couldn’t really say no….

  • Good luck :)

  • Love the frame and the build, especially the HED-ish wheels ♥️

  • Houston we have a clearance problem.

    Side lugs of the Rutlands jibbed right through the protective tape after one short ride. 2mm clearance it seems on one side, and only a tad more on the other.

    Gonna try tyres with less or zero side lugs before I drop down a size to 35/36c
