    Other option was a Fizik Antares . You are a bit biased though ;)

    Lovely bike. Please spray it red. Ta.


    I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.

  • That is a thing of beauty. Chapeau for a stunning build. I'm seriously considering one, how do you find the ride ?

    Thank you , it's early days to be honest and ive just dialled in the fit but so far Id say it's very comfy and is no slouch when you want to go fast.
    I did have to check a few times to see if I had a flat tyre as it does soak up the bumps and road very well . Overall I'm pleased with it as I wanted a old school frane with a twist .
    There's a few bargins out there framewise too so it's worth shopping around .

    Lush, beyond.

    There's a really nice 55cm on ebay, just saying.

    Only on there as the owner needs a 53......

    I see your a Welsh boy welcome to come up and try mine if needs be
  • secretsamsecretsam Posts: 4,864
    That is a handsome bike. In my size, too. Lovely.

    It's just a hill. Get over it.
  • stevie63stevie63 Posts: 481
    That is a nice build and I do think it looks a bit more stealth with the Black Bar tape. Can I ask is that the standard service course tape or the CX version and how are you finding it comfort wise?
  • ddraverddraver Posts: 23,204
    Om nom nom

    That is all

  • gwillisgwillis Posts: 998
    Yes it's the standard tape rather than the cx waffle type .

    So far I've been really pleased with the ride and fit it's definately going to the Alps this year ;)

    how do you find the fit? im torn between a 53 and 55, 55 seems to be quite close to my cube 58
  • gwillisgwillis Posts: 998
    I'm 5ft 8 with 31" leg and 53cm fits great . I'm using a 25mm setback post abd 100mm stem. The geometry of the bike is quite racey but I find it great so far over longer rides . Remember you need to use the effective top tube length .
  • gaanrowlgaanrowl Posts: 326
    im 5`11 with 32 inside leg, effective on a 55 is 560 the same as my cube, and the reach is 388 on a 55 logic and 388 on cube. should it should be a pretty close fit witha 90 mm stem and inline post. im just tempted to go with a 53 and get a set back post and longer stem.

    going for the same build with ultegra

    Message censored robot too as he's got some experience of sizing on these too

    Worth noting if you user 11 speed ultegra.

    The front mech arm are now longer and does fit quite close the tyre when using 25mm tyres . I contacted Ritchey who sad it's down to shimano so fitting a 28mm might be tight . Another option is seeing if a sram front mech may work . Regardless I love mine
  • gaanrowlgaanrowl Posts: 326
    thanks for the heads up ill send benderrobot a msg, interestin regarding the front mech i probably wont run anything larger than 25`s but my archtype rims may make cause a problem.
  • gwillisgwillis Posts: 998
    No it will work with h plus sons your fine
  • gaanrowlgaanrowl Posts: 326
    have you used a front mech conversion bracket with braze on mech to get the mech to fit for 28.6?
  • gwillisgwillis Posts: 998
    Yes I have
  • gaanrowlgaanrowl Posts: 326
    much appreciated, frame orderd last night :)
  • gwillisgwillis Posts: 998
    Great stuff enjoy the build and don't forget to post up ;)
    I'm waiting to see one with deep sections on too

    Pretty light! What steel do they use?

    I have a Koga steel bike (columbus SLX) 57 size, box sec wheels which is 9.3kg
  • stevie63stevie63 Posts: 481
    They use their own, propriety Ritchey triple butted steel which means that the frame weighs about 1750 grams (not as light as the lightest steel frames which can be as light as 1500-1600 grams) which is not too bad. What does help is that the supplied carbon fork only weighs about 350 grams when cut which keeps the overall weight down.
