Good question. This was my main concern with this build! I shimmed a 1" to 1 1/8." I have a bit of headset play that I am still working out, (this is my first threadless bike!) but the shim seems to be working well.

Thanks. Are the spacers 1 1/8" and surrounding the shim? And which make/model is the stem? I'm about to embark on the same with an older steel bike.

Spacers are 1" sourced from Cambria Bike. The stem is the Kalloy Uno Lightweight stem often discussed on WeightWeenies. Happy to answer any other questions!

Ritchey Road Logic

Really great looking build. I love these old Ritchey’s and I’m always on the look out for one in my size. I wouldn’t sweat the weight issue, and I doubt you would even notice the difference if you were to get it down to 18 lbs.

I’ve been using a shimmed 1 1/8 stem on my Moots for years with no issues. Make sure you’re using a 1 1/8 stem cap, which is not what would have come with the 1” headset.

Ritchey

Great build. I am eyeing a Road Logic, and this has definitely given me some inspiration

Thanks for the kind words all! @velomateo thanks for the advice on the 1 1/8 top cap! That's a great idea that I had not thought of yet.

Nice! I'm a big fan of these older Ritcheys. I had no idea you could get them to be in the 18lb-range! I'm gonna have to pick one up and try to do the same.

With more carbon (something like tubular wheels at 1300 grams, carbon handlebars, carbon seatpost, and bottle cage) I'd reckon it would be below 18lbs! Keep us updated if you do pick something up!

Now stolen

All,

This bike was robbed from me last night after I was hit by a vehicle on a ride. I am physically okay and a police report has been filed. Please reach out if you see this posted anywhere for sale. I will be very grateful to get this back!

So sorry to read that. My goodness. Hope you're feeling okay.

I hate to ask but... covered by insurance?

Thanks for the kind words. I have a police report (it was a hit and run + robbery yippee) and have filed a claim with my renter's insurance. Fingers crossed.
