    Yes, very much so, getting better every listen. His previous eps/12's were solid, but this is (for me) the most complete release, nice to see it on ninja as well.

    There's a few nice bits kicking around on ESP. I just got the Teen Bee 12" which is as close as i could get to "Grace" after missing out on Internasjonal LP.

    ditto that!

    Tony Doyle's Roberts Track looks pretty sweet. Them forks!! Neither can afford nor justify it in my life, sadly.

    Thinking about it, I don't know why most aren't straight and include a shim. Not only do you have this ugly gap issue, but it also dictates the stack height with no top-cap finish. Straight one negates both these and does the job.

    How much is a bit? Unless you machined one, I guess most have a small transition.
    Won't a spacer/slammed stem cover it?

    I have a Nitto adaptor I can look at, pretty sure that wasn't offensive as these things go.

    edit - this one

    Or, you can get the ones without the diameter increase and shim, no? like these...

    Cheers, T. But just looking at that pursuit is making my back twinge. Looks dope with the LA84's, must feel like your flying.
    The Green one however....very bloody lovely, i'll add my name to the list if you find yourself bored of it!

    No worries Robin, It was worth a go. It does look bang on from the top, just not quite right on the side profile. One of the nicer Ti stems and fingers-crossed it has been put to good use.

    Think I nailed it for now, by liberating the Nitto stem off the Roberts Max.

    I wish these were easier to get hold of over here. Seems to answer my want of Nitto finishing kit on classic steel frames. The rise puts the bars exactly where I need them as well

    Feels good, so will leave as is a get some miles in before anything else. Happy days!

    I totally agree, though it seems to work on the other Roberts here (perhaps larger frame/max tubing helps) Thinking about it, my IF is exactly the same main triangle as this and a 3t'T works well. I have a silver Thomson X2 left to try, then I'm ripping the Nitto stem off another bike as I'm sure thats the one.

    Cheers fella! I've not had as much time as i'd like on it, but i believe/hope you might be right.

    ^^
    I am pleasantly surprised how well the silver (cheapo Planet X cnc) stem sits on this frame, it was the same on the nagasawa, shouldn't, but does. Worse case, i'll just stick with a 120mm version.

    noted, yours if you want it, Matt
