I liked this bike first time around but this version is even more impressive. I like the subtle colour scheme which makes the blue leap out.

Only thing that seems out of place on the build list is the Ritchey alu bar?

Otherwise perfect. Lightweight but totally functional

Thanks. I know the alu bar is a bit out of place: problem is to find a bar that suits the AX Zeus stem... tried with a Schmolke TLO I had here around, but it was impossible to mount that one!

As said, because the AX Zeus stem does not pass the sudden curves of the handlebars. The curves of this Ritchey bar is more egally distributed and does not have sudden angles. :?
