Here is version 3.0 of my 2009 Ridley Damocles. Have it built up with a mix of SRAM parts and my race wheels.

Image

15.25 lbs - 6.9 kg

Red shifters (wanted the better shifting and cables)
Force Crank (cosmetic)
Red FD (since I had one laying around)
Rival RD
Rival brakes
DA chain
Red/1090 cassette (race wheels, Force/1070 on my training wheels)
3T Pro bars
3T Pro stem
Thomson Masterpiece post (already had it, doesn't match but it's super light and stiff...)
Look Blade pedals
old Selle Italia SLR saddle
random carbon cages

Race wheels are:
Reynolds Assaults
Vittoria Corsa Evo CX tubulars
KCNC ti skewers

Can't imagine I'm going to keep that bar tape for long.

Did you have the 17deg. stem with the Scott ?

How's the fit and performance compared ?

Ridley's headtubes are LONG for larger sizes !!! Same Geo as the Helium ?

Thanks.

I previously had a -10 w/ a 5mm spacer. Now have -17 with no spacer. So, much lower bars.

Did a hard 25 mile ride yesterday. Felt good. Did a little bit of descending and it seemed to carve the corners more confidently then I remember.

I took measurements from my Addict but there is still some tweaking to do on the fit. Geometries are very different.

+1 for the disappointment in the trend of extra long head tubes

But quite a yummy bike nonetheless! It looks mean.

It's killing me too! Have to keep telling myself that it's a backup bike and that I shouldn't put extra money into it.
