This Sameness steel stem was in rough shape. I sanded it down to bare metal and did a couple coats of primer, color and clear. The fresh paint on the length of quill that got inserted did not hold up...

Those brifters look really clean. Whole group looks great for that matter. Anything STI seems to be crazy pricey these days. Makes this set a real value. GLWS!

Big ringer here until it gets too steep. I fall in to the psychological camp that with identical gear inches, the big ring combo feels faster than the small ring combo.

My spray-bombed beater is a PSN 10 originally outfitted like the champagne model pictured. The Super Vitus frameset is even lighter than my 531c Raleigh. One of the better kept C&V secrets IMO.

We could value it compared to other mid 00’s aluminum Allez with 9-speed 105 but probably not fair in this case. Very unique build that seems to connect with you. You should value it based on that.

Agreed not worth much as it sits. If it was ready to ride with new bar tape, chain and sorting out the cables, then maybe worth $125 once all that was done.

I tend to go with the shortest spindle I can while maintaining correct chainline. My knees seem to notice small differences in Q Factor and the narrower the better for me.
