    I figured you would be happy, I took your advice and did not mutilate the original fork steerer.

    That's definitely a classic parts-bin build, but it's good to see a great frame ready for the trail. How's it ride?

    It is very fast (compared to my previously built Nishiki Ariel SS build). The frame is amazing light and being a SS keeps the weight low. I can see now why Ritchey frames are so coveted.
