This is stage 1 of my build, rust proofing.
Should you leave or fill the drain holes in a steel frame?

Shaping up nicely! And the hubs are a sweet match too.

Can you share any detail about the rims? 32mm are rare apart from Reynolds and Zipp.

Edit: you made me google for 32mm carbon tubs, and there are some generic ones now on alibaba.

Just encountered a hurdle, Ritchey C260 stem doesn't work with Ritchey Curve bars in wet as the paints to thick. New stem on order :-(

Just waiting for a new stem as the C260 stem won't allow me to feed the curve evo bars through :-(

You can fit C260 stem to Evo Curve bar. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... AmXnDdgCo0

That´s what i´m using on my Swiss Cross build.

Yes, you can do it on some finishes but wet red is thicker and there is no way it will fit without scratching. Apparently Ritchey are working on it.
