    is there a possibilty for 26mm bars/stems also instead of 31.8? thats seems pretty classic too

    Scott
    Hey Scott,

    Thanks for the supporting the brand and the great feedback! Yeah, we totally agree about silver; it still can make a bike look trick. 26mm, however, is unfortunately a little dated now, and we just don't get a lot of demand for it anymore. So, to answer your question, it's not likely that we'll make the bars/stems in a 26mm variation.

    I love questions like this. In short the WCS Zetas are just some amazingly well designed wheels that I can't rave about enough. We've seriously buckled down and put together what we think is the best alloy wheelset money can buy. If you do the research you'll see that they're lighter, stronger, and stiffer when compared to our competition. Our test riders (present company included) have also confirmed that these are some of the best feeling alloy wheels they've ridden. We've purposely priced them to get as many people to give them a try as possible.

    Technical mumbo jumbo:
    Vanadium alloy is crazy light and strong, and it makes for a great breaking surface.
    Trifecta spoke lacing increases lateral rigidity and responsiveness. Plus looks sweet!
    Titanium skewers for reduced weight.

    Hope you decide to try a pair out. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

    Dave, What's the closest thing you have to the FSA WingPro CW Compact that you can find on this page... http://www.fullspeedahead.com/fly.as...layout=product

    I love these bars but I need a size 42 or 44 instead of a 40 which came on my bike. FSA measures their compact bars from the center of the bar ends, the drops flare out just a little bit, these bars are very comfortable for my smaller hands. They are aluminum wrapped in carbon, probably just for aesthetics. I like the look of Ritchey products and wondered if you had anything like this and what the price range might be. Can't afford the full carbon bars.

    Thanks.

    In terms of similar bars you've got two choices with Ritchey: the WCS Curve and WCS EvoCurve. Both are the short reach/shallow drop type bar. The Curve being the more traditional in shape and the EvoCurve with a slight ergo top section and a little bit of a flare in the drops. Both bars come in your standard bead blast black, additionally the EvoCurve has a Wet Black and a Wet White option as well. They range from $96-$130 depending on the finish you want. I hope this helps! Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions about these bars.

    Hey Dave, is there any reason that Ritchey doesn't offer a zero setback seatpost?

    Ray,

    Interesting question: 1) because we do make zero setback seatposts, and 2) because it made us realized a small error on our webpage, which would lead people to think we don't make them. We're working on fixing it, sorry for the confustion. Long story short, you can follow these links to read about both our Alloy and Carbon zero offset seatposts.

    WCS Alloy 1-Bolt 0mm offset

    WCS Carbon 1-Bolt 0mm offset The 0 Offset is listed as an option on this page. Scroll down to the bottom and click on the description to see a picture.
    I personally have been using this seatpost for a while now, so if you have any questions let me know.

    Zero degree white seatposts are often asked for here at the shop.

    Thanks for the reply Dave

    On the question of the white finish - I know I would be interested if one was offered.

    BreakAway Cross Ti Build

    Hello Dave,

    I just got all the parts to build my BreakAway Cross Ti. It will be built with the Campagnolo Chorus 11 speed groupset. Before I start building, do you have any recommendations regarding BB cups installation on a Ti frame? Should I use Park anti-seize grease or thread the cups with only the thread lock tape factory installed by Campagnolo? Any other specific recommendations on torque or installation of other components on a Ti frame?

    Many thanks!

    Stef

    Thanks for choosing a Ritchey! As far as assembly, I'd us the anti-seize on the BB cups and grease all the bolts on the frame with the same stuff, especially the seat binder. However, make sure you do not put any grease or lubricant on the downtube hinge clamp area. Other than that, general bike assembly practices apply. Be sure to post a picture of your bike when it's finished so everyone can see what they're missing out on.

    Dave,

    Speaking of white...does Ritchey have a Biomax saddle in white that is 155mm? I dig the Comp Biomax and the price is definitely right. But I need something a little wider than the typical 130 or 143mm width.

    Unfortunately, not at the moment. We've been trying out some new saddle designs and wider options is definitely a point of discussion.

    Alright. These Ritchey Quick Connectors for my breakaway. I don't get them. One end has a screw to hold the cable, but the other end doesn't. How do I secure the other half of the cable? I thought about just using a crimp on end piece but that doesn't really seem safe.

    Can you comment on the complaints about slipping on this seatpost: http://www.ritcheylogic.com/dyn_prodfamily.php?k=307368

    I'm in the market for a new post. I have the Specialized s-works pave, and it slips. I thought a two-bolt would be a better solution. I know the thomson is good, but I want a carbon one.

    Hi Natrab

    Unscrew the quick connector. Pull the cable from the shifter/brake through the top end and secure it with the set screws. Cut off the excess cable. Put a new der/brake cable into the lower half (the head of the cable sits inside the connector) and reattach it to the upper portion.

    Give me a call or drop me an email if you have any other questions.

    Just dropping in to say that I love my Ritchey cockpit components. Using the Logic II in Wet Black with the 4-Axis stem in Wet Black. The bars fit me and make the ride. Also love the fact that they are only 20 grams heavier than the Logic carbon bars and way less than half the price.
    You can't fix stupid.

    Short answer to the majority of slippage issues is under torquing. 16Nm is actually a pretty high torque spec and most people don't have a torque wrench and under-tighten the bolts. Hope you decide to go with a Ritchey!

    Silver Bar/Stem

    Hi Dave. When do you think the silver parts will be available? A while back you thought October...anything more definitive at this point? The bar will have the Curve shape, right? Which stem will be silver?

    Thank you,

    Paul

    Yes, they're still expected to arrive middle of October. The bar is the same shape as the Curve and the stem is the same as the WCS 4-Axis stem.
