Bike Components Ordered for the New Road Bike Build!

in Blog by Carl H. Martens

Today, I ordered all the parts needed for my custom road bike build which will use a Rocky Mountain Solo 70CR carbon road bike frame.  The wheel build is already under way and the plan is that next Thursday once I have all the components needed I’ll put everything together (with the help of my friend Greg).  I am sooo excited!

Here’s a list of all the components:

  • Ritchey WCS UD Carbon Fork 1-1/8″
  • Ritchey WCS Evo Curve 31.8 42CM Handlebars – Wet Black
  • SRAM Rival Component Group (Crankset, Bottom Bracket, Brake Calipers, Shifters, Cassette, Derailleurs, Chain)
  • Selle Italia SLR Flow Team Edition Saddle – White
  • Thomson 31.6 x367 Seatpost – Black
  • Thomson Seatpost Collar 31.8MM – Black
  • Thomson X2 Road 31.8 100MM – 10D Stem – Black
