A small RIH...

Building a 53cm RIH for a friend. A quick mock-up for bike fitting: I will switch the headset for Campagnolo and the handlebar for a Deda Speciale for 2cm less reach but I'; m quite pleased with the overall picture...

Don't forget to cross the shifter cable housing in front of the head tube so it doesn't rub.

So you are going to use DT for the front mech and Ergo for the rear? Any particular reason for that?

It's just a gimmick that I have on most of my own bikes too. A nod to the nineties when climbers used this setup to save some weight...

Ultra likes that RIH... the chrome work looks new... 70s chrome eh? triple plated as it should be...

Oh cool, I figured as much. Nothing wrong with gimmickry -- it's all in good fun

That's a sweet frame, great color with the chrome. Look forward to seeing it completed.

I'm a big fan of RIHs - I don't really see too many of them. Went to the old RIH shop last time I was in Amsterdam like 7 years ago - he was very "Dutch" (basically, did his own thing, barely acknowledged we were there).

Yup, the late Wim van der Kaaij treated every visitor that way, claimed they kept him from was he did best: building frames

It's getting somewhere: Deda "Speciale" handlebar, Brooks leather bartape and de-anodised Campagnolo Nucleon clinchers instead of the tubular wheels Don't worry, I've ordered a fresh set of Veloflex tires

Outstanding.

So, since it appears you are Dutch, tell us: do you wear a helmet when you ride?
