I really like when people love an older bike so much they just keep updating the components rather than replacing it totally... :thumbup:

Hi Jeff, its a VP comp - a bit of a Chris King rip off with cane creek internals. - although it looks good and certainly works well enough.
Bike is in the shop at the mo having a blue Chris King bottom bracket installed to replace the SRAM red that gave up after 6-months :evil: so the next step will be to put a genuine shiny blue Chris King headset on there as well.

Excellent - thanks! I've just picked up a 2001 Victoire 55cm that I'm starting to upgrade to glory. ; )
I've been a long time Zurich rider, same size, same year, and am just trying to class it up a little.

The blue headset looks great, btw.

Cheers, glad you like it - but I believe that the frame mass is about the same as a small moon @ approx 1.6kg....
I forgive it tho as its a great ride!
