Thanks @rallizes!

@velomateo, they're Roly Polys, so nominally 28, probably a little bigger on Belgiums. Still waiting on brakes to come in, but I'm hoping I can sneak a fender in with those tires.

Looks good!

An RB-1 with black 5800, Ritchey classic, and wide rims would be a balleur neo-retro build -- looks like you're going even higher-class than that!

Hung some more parts. Just waiting on a front derailleur clamp, then I should be good to go. Clearance under the Potenza brakes looks pretty solid, too.

Wonderful modern interpretation of a 25 year-old classic! Enjoy!

Bridgestone RB-1

Here’s my RB1 - we’re cousins!



Force/Red 22 Parts + Boyd Altamont mixed with old Ritchey Logic bar and seatpost.

Initial impressions are really good. A couple of tiny tweaks to dial the fit, but otherwise loving it.

It’s actually a mishmash of Campy parts pre-14 Record shifters and rear mech, Potenza brakes, new Veloce cranks and front d. Everything works really well, despite my mostly poor mechanicing.

This is Awesome. Nice job on the build and may I say that your Classic bars and Shifter placement is SPOT ON and proper.
