I picked up this bike today for $5 at the thrift store. I was foaming at the mouth when I saw the old school XT derailers. I am having a heck of a time identifying this bike, Here is what I have:
Steel frame, rear dropouts stamped Ritchey. Tig welded it appears. Serial # appears to be 98715 and under that is what appears to be a date 4*92. 1 1/8 headset. All cables routed on top tube. Odd configuration at the top of the seat tube/seat post binder. I cant read the stickers, but I have tried to take pictures so maybe someone will recognize.
XT DX or LX Brakes
XT DX or LX Cranks
Nice Seatpost, looks like Syncros, but I havenâ€™t been able to get it out to make a positive ID
Crappy newer rims
Un-identified stemâ€”(looks like a salsa from the roller mechanism)
