    That is a high quality pickup. Tom Ritchey has some special love for tandems I hear. Part of his courtship and marriage to his wife in fact. And why he still offers one in his lineup now. Very cool that you got one.

    The last time I saw Tom, he was with his wife and a tandem on Alpine Road, fixing a flat.

    Last ride on this before the Chorus 12sp groupset goes on, and hopefully some warmer weather!

    I love that bike Chris ! I think the chainring really makes it. It makes me crave for the BreakAway I sold, and for the world that I was lucky enough to explore with.

    I'm holding onto the hope that there will be a new disc-brake BreakAway in the future, and that international travel will resume.

    New Shamal Carbon wheels for the Outback. The bearings are insanely good (as they are for all Campy wheels) and the freehub has way lower drag than almost any other wheels I can think of.

    Here's my grey Road Logic. Built with a mix of Campagnolo parts, in large part because these models seemingly end up with SRAM or Shimano usually :)

    The curve of the Ritchey evo curve bars though don't mate ideally with the Campagnolo shifters IMO, for a nice flat transition it leaves the ends a bit far away pointing downwards. So in the future I'll probably change those for another model.







    And my p650B:

    I've got it bad for a Break-Away steel road disc but word around the campfire is that Covid has killed that project :-(

    Hopefully supply chains return to normal, international travel resumes, and road cycling reverses it's deathbed trend and that frame is made a priority again.

    I like Ritchey Curves. They may work better for you if the bars are rotated so the ends - the last 1-2" - are level to the ground. The ramps won't be level, but if you slide the levers up the bar you can create a pretty comfortable transition from the ramps to the levers. And the lever blades will still be reachable from the drops.

    Something more like this, albeit not with Campy levers or Curve bars, but it shows the sort of transition (kind of a swale rather than a table top) possible by rotating the bars down enough to level the ends.

    With Ritchey Curves and Sim-Works Wonderers, I get a good transition to the levers by setting the levers higher up than I usually would.

    From what I recall - and it's been a good few years now since I set this up - with the bars rotated to where they ought to be (akin to those in the CyclingTips photo above) and the levers then placed higher up on the bar, when the levers were clamped down they tended to rotate so that they faced inwards slightly.

    It wasn't really possible to get them fixed so that the levers were fully vertical (when looked at face-on) rather than off at an angle on that part of the bar. The result being I had to move them down a little on the curve to where they are now so they would clamp and be vertical, at that point there wasnt much to do but rotate the bars up a little.

    Did you get a new camera Chris? Orientation coding isn't sticking somehow.

    I think you are using static URL from Flickr instead of BBCode. Shouldn't affect it, but perhaps Flickr strips something off when the state URL is used? Or new phone, new camera, anti-gravity boots, something.

    Ritchey in red, white and blue is just so good.

    Hi - using BBCode from Flickr. Looks okay on my laptop, but sideways on my mobile. Picture taken on an RX100 - previous posts have seemed okay, so a bit of a mystery. Maybe the picture editor in Flickr is doing something to the orientation coding...?

    Could be. It just started a couple image posts ago for you. The other one is the DeRosa with the blooming cherry tree behind it. Usually your photos are correctly oriented. That's why I wondered if you'd gotten a new camera.

    This arrived today for one of the young guys at work and I've got to admit to more than a little jealousy! I'm looking forward to seeing how he builds it up.

    Just posting for memories sake. I can still kick myself for letting it go.
