updated again. Picked up the Dura Ace wheels here, loved the ride but always hated the graphics. Got rid of those and pretty happy with how it looks now.

Looks beautiful.

I always think it looks weird when a Ritchey bike doesn't use Ritchey contact parts. Love the Thomson stuff though - so excellent choice!

The grey lizard skin tape is perfection on this and the debadged wheels look great. Not surprised this is a lifer.

thx Paulo.

All ritchey stuff would definitely be appropriate and I thought about getting the Ritchey classic stem and post, but I already had and like the Thomson bits and they look perfectly fitting on there, plus I didn't want to make it toooo Ritchey fan-boy build. Bars and pedals are Ritchey however.
