Wow, coming from the SL4 Tarmac to a steel frame is a monumental shift. Are you sure you really want to go that way? I have an SL4 and have steel bikes too (Colnago) and would never choose the steel bikes for spirited group rides. Just my initial thought when reading your post. I know, not answering your question. .

See, I had an SL4 Expert and sold it because it was just a bike, I took my Colnago Master or Dream out every time over it.

What size is the Road Logic in this picture Marin?
IIRC my Logic it was a 55.

Mid-reach brakes can look ok too, I'm running TRP 957 on the Heretic CL2:

Note the clearance - 35mm tires fit just fine :D

Re Etap on the Ritchey: You can always cut off the cable stops and then just go to spot repair shop, they can probably match any paint.
That's beatiful. What handlebar is this? Did you remove the logos?

It's a generic bar that looks a lot like the Bontrager aero bars. It came in bare carbon without logos.
