I now have a more modern Ritchey Road Logic and what comes with the modern frame is also the modern prices of parts...

In the end, I would probably be spending a comparable amount of money taking either approach (likely a less with trial and error especially if I resell things). I definitely need to give it some thought, but I appreciate your insight on things.
Hi Jeff

Congrats on the Ritchey Road a very nice frame

I know what you mean about parts & what I have usually done is buy something like Kalloy Uno Stems for usually $20 & lightweight at 116 gr for even a 120mm

Same with seatposts carbon off ebay for good prices

Once dialed in I can change to other pricier brands if a benefit is perceived.

Like you say you can sell off extras later if you want or hold for other fittings

I am sure many swear by various fitters & their methods for good reason

Good Luck with the new build & hope to see pics too
