Riders here use Ritchey components (pro,comp,wcs) ? experience of use,satisfaction of it ? carbon or alu ?
After being mesured because i needed a good XC position on my bike and being shure not having back,neck or knee problems,they told for a more competitieve style and confort in my riding i needed to change my bar (from 64cm rizer to 58cm flat),stem (from 10cm to 12cm 6° angle) and 1 spacers of 10mm instead of 20mm.
my bike is now set up with Fsa components ,for the changes i would go Ritchey because of a good weight and strenght compomise.
I think i'll go WCS for all and alu instead of carbon(carbon is scary IF i wouldlike to go extreme riding it wouldn't brake ^^).
so it will be: -wcs flat mountain bar 58cm
-bar ends wcs short
-grips ergo wcs
-wcs stem 4axis 12cm 6°angle
-2 x 5mm spacers carbon
-seatpost wcs carbon or alu
is this a good choice or u people recommend something else or better still in those weight range like ritchey proposes ? i would prefere staying in one brand so it would stay estetik and keep a nice look.
i'll go ritchey 2007 or wait for 2008 components,here the color changes for mat black to shiny black (wet finish)..
(u can chek pics of my bike here http://forum.mountainbike.be/viewtop...light=lapierre )
