    Hi Dave.

    I'm shaving some weight from my Cannondale Six (fork weight: 740 gr). I can buy a brand new Ritchey wcs UD Carbon fork 2012 edition. Is there a difference between the 2012 and 2015 forks?

    And....can you determin the production year? 1.1/8/45mm rake, weight: around 296 gr, made in Taiwan. Box says copyright 2008 Ritchey. Serial/barcode: PRD 12668/10151.

    WCS Carbon Cross Fork Disc

    Hey Dave,

    With the integrated crown race on the WCS CC fork, is there a preferred way to set that up in a 44mm head tube? Does Ritchey have a headset that will work for that?

    Dear Dave, sorry for my bad english... not native english speaking ;-)
    I wonder if you can help me out with an information regarding the frame. We are a german cycling related podcast (Velohome | Der Podcast rund ums Fahrrad, unserem liebsten Sportgerät und schönstem Hobby.) and are thinking about making a long term test about this steel frame. Can you help me out with contact details from a german/european sales representative to get in touch regarding this request? Thanks in advance.

    The 2012 and 2015 forks are the same. There's no way to determine the production year. Sorry for the late response.

    Just make sure your using a headset with a 45 degree bottom bearing. It's pretty standard so you shouldn't have any problems locating one. Pretty much all our 1 1/8" sealed bearing headsets will work with it.

    Hi Dave,
    Just wondering who I can buy a Ritchey frame from in Canada (Southern Ontario to be exact)
    Is it any shop with a Live To Play Sports account or does it have to be specific shop?
    There are no local shops popping up on the Ritchey Dealer locator in Ontario. Could be me though
    Would you be able to send a list of shops in the Toronto and surrounding area?
    Thanks!

    I have a question on the seat posts.

    I'm looking at purchasing either the Superlogic Carbon Link Flexlogic or the Superlogic Carbon 1-bolt seat post with the idea of replacing a Fizik Cyrano Aluminum post. I really, really like the adjustment method of the Fizik post.

    This is for a new build of a bike with a custom stainless frame. I'm wondering about the relative compliance between the Flexlogic, the Superlogic 1 bolt and the Alloy post.

    For convenience, I think I'd prefer the 1 bolt design. The clamp looks substantial and should hold well. I'm not a light rider but about 200lb or so. Can you provide any guidance to help me make this decision? Are these posts applicable for my use and for the bike I'm building?

    J.

    If compliance is the name of your game, you'll want to go with the Link. It uses our new Flexlogic carbon layup which allows the seatpost to flex in the right ways to absorb road chatter. The 1 Bolt is all about weight savings and easy adjustability. None of our products have weight limitations, so ride with confidence.

    Is the 'blatte' a coating or just aluminum that has omitted the ball burnish step? I have a habit of corroding through handlebars and curious to know if blatte offers additional protection over anodizing.

    Thanks

    Largest I've seen is a 40c tire on there but there was a ton of clearance left, so likely more but we haven't explored it.

    Blatte is a coating. Not sure if it's any more protective as we haven't tested it in those circumstances to see. That being said, it's been over a year since we introduced the finish and I haven't yet seen any come back from sweat corrosion. It definitely wouldn't be any less resistant.
