Lovely! :thumbup:
I would only go for a black stem since Ritchey's white looks different than the frame's white.

@kgt

Thanks for the kind words! :) Just rode the bike this morning. I can't gush enough about the 'liveliness' of steel frames. When I stand on the pedals, the bike feels relatively stiffer to the fillet-brazed custom-made Columbus SL I have back home but it still has enough give that makes riding over cobblestones and mini-potholes a joy. My only 'concern' is that the front end, similar to my Columbus SL frame, isn't as stiff as my Giant TCR SLR (aluxx), perhaps because of the headtube and fork diameter (i believe that this F.Moser still has the standard 1" steerer). That said, this is indeed a very lovely ride! :)

Re: the mismatched white stem, I initially couldn't find any black 80mm stem in the bike shop area where I had the bike assembled until I scavenged the "for sale" tray, where I saw this white Ritchey C260 4-axis stem. Maybe I'll just Sharpie the stem? :oops:

Thanks again! :D

Very nice choice of colour.


How do you find the bottle cages...do they hold well?

I can see that your frame is electronic only. Am I seeing things or is there an opening on the rear face of the head tube?
