Got in contact with my bike shop.
The first potential availability of the bike I am after is Q1 2023, if I am lucky as there are no spare ones.
So I went online and found a second hand model 22km away.
It's a 2020 model and only driven around for less then 100km.
The owner fell when he couldn't unclip himself when he stood still.

Thanks.
Now to decide on a MTB shifter to bring the right shifter to the left.
I found the Shiftmate 8 from JTEC which "coverts" the road derailleur ratio into the MTB ratio.
Meaning you can mix and match MTB and road gear.

yeah, slim pickings - I think BBB sell a MTB stem in the sizing I'm looking for that I found this morning from what I can tell, so may end up having to go that way

wait... 25.8mm?

or 26.0mm?

25.8 is old mtb, 26.0 is old road.

(we won't even talk about the Cinelli 26.4mm stuff)

Back in the days of both of those clamp diameters, anything shorter than 100mm was heresy. We were selling Control Tech and Ritchey and Syncros back then and the "big seller" lengths were 120, 130 and 140mm.

Just based of frame geometry back then... longer stems were needed for cockpit space.
