    I bought something called jbweld steelstick as well as a shim. After I got that bonded, I aligned the dropouts and Now the axles sit securely, and the wheel sits totally straight in the fork.
    Thank you Andrea!

    After that, you can get the dropouts hammered with fine art, to give you back the right fit for the wheel axle. Or use JB-Weld and a piece of 0.05/0.10mm 304 stainless, I've done this many times on worn-out carbon rear dropouts.

    You're welcome.
    Bear in mind it's not a permanent solution, you are to check the shim is there every time you take the wheel off. Ain't gonna come off that easy, when done properly, but you want a belt&braces approach to this.

    I love this picture of Tom Ritchey...riding his own hand made frame.

    I have been thinking about that black one as an upgrade to my older (mid 2000s) steel bike. I want the wider tires and have never tried a carbon fork. What do you like about riding that bike?

    Hi Dan, it all comes down to ride quality for me. The above represents my 3rd and 4th Ritchey frames, (Steel Break Away and Road Logic Caliper Heritage edition coming before) and they all share what I would call a really balanced sprightly feel about them. Not overly stiff, or light, but a great balance and they have this lovely nuggety ride where you can feel the road feedback coming through in a helpful and engaging way, not a tiresome way. I've had plenty of steel, carbon, alu and a ti bike to compare to, but these strike the right balance for me for everyday riding.

    Worthy of reposting now that it is lighter and more matchy.

    First 30mm tubulars since new old stock Clement Paris Roubaix were in fact almost new stock in the late 80s.

    Ritchey is blowing out the Breakaway road frame for $1,000 including the case. I just ordered one of the black/tan ones, despite the fact that I have another road bike on the way. Figure if/when pandemic subsides and I start spending a lot of time in Tampa again for work, it may make sense to leave it in the office down there for stretches at a time.

    That would be very tempting....

    I don't see that pricing on the Ritchey site, but I am outside of the US.

    That's a great deal, although shame they no longer have the silver colourway. Whatever colour though, it's almost impossible not to pick up lots of paint chips on these frames if you are regularly separating and re-constructing them.

    Paint chips don’t bother me much. Pre COVID, I was in Tampa about every six weeks, and a recent promotion makes that more of a monthly thing when travel resumes as well as visiting properties in Orlando and SE FL. So the idea would be to leave it in Tampa for as long a stretch as possible and only bring it home if/when I had another suitable trip with it on the horizon.

    I’ve had a travel bike before and building/packing for trips less than 4-5 days, repeatedly, is not my jam.

    Worst case scenario, I take it to Ireland and leave it at the in laws in Wexford.
