    -Ritchey comp stem
    -salsa bell lap bar

    That bike is absolutely gorgeous! What a great bike!

    I am so glad you posted it because I was looking to get a cross check and was thinking about the color. Thats one of the few I have seen in the color black.
    Would you like a dream with that?

    What's the difference with the Brooks B17 Champion Special? I'm shopping for my preferred brooks saddle right now. Thanks.
