  • Yeah, I feel you. Funnily enough, the steerer left by Dave is exactly the right height for a Problem Solvers shim. Like millimetre perfect at 49mm.

    There are lots of stems that look good with this frame, it's just a matter of me deciding which one I want.

  • There are several 1" ahead stems available, admittedly not as many as 1 1/8", so "need" of a custom stem is not necessary, but if you're dropping 4k on a custom built frame absolutely nowt wrong with getting a nice custom made stem to top it off.

  • What are the nice 1" ahead stems? I found one kalloy knock off ages ago, otherwise I found it a massive ballache tracking one down.

    Also nice build JB! Looks banging. Sadly I got more emotionally invested in your Seven than you it seems. But guess what? I just bought a 2015 Genesis Equilibrium so SUCK IT

  • Depends what you call nice? eBay is the best place to look, ITM/Ritchey....

  • Lots of 1" ahead but not lots of 1" ahead with a 31.8mm clamp....

  • Not been my experience. Very little 1" ahead about with the right length and angle.

  • This was quite nice.

  • Ah yes I saw this elsewhere. Very nice indeed. Joe Bell paint is just great. Looks especially good on stainless!

  • Oh then you know more about it than I. I just worked on it today and took it for a spin. Stainless was hella nice yeah.

  • Oh cool. Yeah, I saw it over on the Paceline forum. Not the wheels or finishing kit I'd use but the frame is amazing.

  • Yeah finishing kit was a bit of an odd one. I reckon they’re stop gap. Something more subtle required. Will ask the guy tomorrow.

    The ride surprised me. Very nimble. The fit though, holy shit, like it was made for me.

  • Yeah, very nimble indeed. The Onesto is designed to ride exactly the same as mine, but is stainless - perfect for England! I think that at 3000GBP as of today, 1250 GBP less than the price of an S-Works Tarmac frameset, these are bargains.

    Apples to oranges comparison, but I know which I'd rather have!
