    Thank you! Will need to give that Outspoken Cyclist podcast a listen.
    Curious to hear what Richard has to share. Appreciate you posting it here.

    I've wanted a Richard Sachs bicycle since I was twelve years old. By the time she got to me, I was at a point in my life where I was working and travelling so much I hadn't seen much daylight in a long, long time. So I whiled away the time ordering the parts I wanted Johnny Cash style - one piece at a time. Finally I ran out of components to order, and got to a point where I could spend some time on me instead of work. Though I'm no photographer (and clearly will never survive as a handlebar wrapper), I thought y'all would enjoy a look.









    I can't describe the ride without resorting to cliches, but those of you who know Richard and/or have owned his works already know what I mean. Those of you who don't yet know - trust me, the hype isn't hype at all.

    Still need to sort some details (cap a few cables, and need a front derailleur plate to keep the cable from rubbing on the FD), but other than that and the awful bar wrap she's close to done. I'm not mounting a computer, and still on the fence over Arundel Mandible or Silca Ti cages.

    That's a beaut. Nicely done.

    Maybe check out Myth Cycles powder coated versions of King Cages. Seems like that bike needs a black wire cage.

    Love the color. You need a skinner looking stem. This ones looks out of place.

    Thanks Jorn, for the suggestion and the kind words, though Richard and Joe Bell get the credit (okay, so I am responsible for finding that shade of blue...). I have two cages from Myth on the way.

    I'm in the mood to gush a little over y'all. Before I found this place, my maintenance skills consisted of spraying Tri-Flow on my chain and airing up tires. I found the site almost ten years ago, and joined a month before giving Richard my deposit at his Austin NAHBS booth. I swore I'd be able to give the bike the care it deserves once it arrived. Thanks to reading this forum over the years I gained the confidence to turn wrenches myself, and by listening to feedback from more accomplished members I saved immeasurable frustration by buying the "right" tools over time. Y'all are a notorious bunch of enablers, but when it came time to conduct a couple of dress rehearsals (I built a few practice bikes, as I knew I'd hurl myself off something tall if I biffed this one) I had the right tools for the jobs, and when I found myself stuck I could always consult the trusty VSalon Search-O-Matic and find works and pictures to guide the way. The classifieds yielded the wheels from Rich down in Oz, TooTall provided encouragement to help me overcome my fear of living with tubulars, and the Big Fella's NFS Race Grease and NixFrix are the only grease/lube this one will ever see (as long as it's available!), and several of you taught me it's okay to affix Dura Ace pedals to an otherwise perfect bicycle...

    I think Lionel's right; I'll swap stems at some point. Ditto seatpost. Both will be carbon eventually, but I want to log a few hundred miles dialing in fit first, and since I'm a completely sentimental dork it was important to me to start off with parts associated with Richard's teams (e.g. Cinelli). I like to support those who support people I support - giving good brand and all that.

    One thing that might trim the look of the stem area is (assuming the fork steerer is 1" but it may not be) is to shim only the stem but not the spacers. Use 1" spacers. You just have to make sure that the bottom of the stem and the top spacer contact each other well enough that the adjustments at the top cap actually adjust the bearing races in the headset as intended.

    But again - that's assuming 1" steerer. If it is 1 1/8" then discard the advice and go for a ride!

    Believe it or not that’s a 1” steerer with two 20mm 1” spacers from Wheels Mfg, so the stem is shimmed but the spacers aren’t. Maybe I need to seek out slimmer spacers.

    Nah. I think you’re right and I’ll just ride it more!

    Touché. It'll take me a few tries to get it right.

    Continuing the blue Sachs theme...






    The paint is a house of kolor cobalt with a pearl topcoat recommended by JB that gives it that purple feel in some light. Took a flyer with the highlighter-orange decals. May not be for everyone and certainly not traditional in any sense, but it makes a statement and I love it. The ride is incredible. Richard and JB did an amazing job as usual and expected. Big props to Carson Leh for the custom leatherwork on the saddle and Justin at #BlackOakVelo for the finish work.

    Sean, how did you settle on cobalt? Bad choice of words - clearly no "settling" there at all...! But I'm curious how you came to your decision. It took all the courage I had not to specify the all-time-classic-RS red.

    I don't know if mine would have Campy, but it would almost definitely have Campy wheels.
