Need help finding Ritchey stem /Chorus HS ...(10 posts)

Need help finding Ritchey stem /Chorus HS ...jeebus
Jan 22, 2002 5:00 PM
Hey guys,

I'm looking for a Ritchey Pro stem (not the >$80 WCS model) and a Campy Chorus 1" threadless headset.

The problem is that I can't seem to find a place selling both at a good price! I'd rather not buy them from two separate mailorder joints b/c I want to avoid excess shipping. (Colorado Cyclist has both, but the stem is not available in my length... 11cm)

I'd prefer to pay less than $50 for the HS and less than $40 for the stem.

It seems most places will have the stem but not the chorus HS, or vice versa. I don't want to pay more for the WCS and Record stuff.

Help!

Thanks!

ive been looking for the WCS lately, and have really only found it for around 90 bucks (excelsports.com)

zonabici has a rather cryptic listing posted for way cheap. cant tell what sizes are available or even if its really the correct product.

know of any good deals? ive scoured every site i can think of, and thats all i came up with.

thanks,
chad

A guy who works there (or owns the business) tried helping me out with some hard to find mtn bike brake parts. He was eager to help me out, but in the end it was easier to get the parts from a guy in the US.

His name was Jan Gerrit Klok. He seems to frequent MTBR.com.

Anybody know what the approximate conversion rate is from Euros to dollars? I think he may have a good deal on Vredestein Fortezzas (my favorite tires). I'm also liking the 1.5" Conti Cross Country to replace the ancient 1.9" on my MTB

thanks for the tip.

this is a good currency converter: http://www.xe.com/ucc/

Vredestein - Fortezza Tricomp
31.98 EUR = 28.3497 USD

Continental - CrossCountry
34.15 EUR = 30.2761 USD

Check out www.excelsports.com. I think they've got the Ritchey Pro stem for $39, and their prices for headsets are competitive with just about anyone.
