This was the early Tom Ritchey approach and one of the main reasons the first road bike he built for his father was under 15 lbs in the late-70s. I was looking for a picture on the web but can't find it, anyone have a copy if it? I've always been surprised by how few framebuilders don't at least build the stems and seatposts for the frames they build. I understand the practical reasons but as everybody knows the best things in life are the little details. enjoy, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives SB, CA --
