    Anyone tried some of the Ritchey WCS "wet" components?

    Hey guys

    Thinking about buying me a seatpost and stem in the new Ritchey WCS "wet" version. Have any of you tried these? Do the finish easily get scratches? Is it the same version as the old one, just with another finish?

    Looking forward to hear from you!

    Kind regards

    I saw ol' Tom today on his road bike...that's why the thread caught my eye. Had to google the wet stuff so obviously no help there...

    It Sucks

    I Have a Stem and a Handlebar, both are White Wet Ritchey WCS.

    The Looks are great, but the quality of painting....It sucks...My friends..it's not bad...it simply sucks

    Any time I try to change the grips, or to adjust the bake levers...the paint comes off creating very ugly holes...

    So, be aware. Good product but painted with Neanderthal technology.

    I've got one of the Ritchey "Rizer" bars in the wet black color. The above comments are pretty accurate -- you have to be careful with the installation of grips and controls.
