I think your Ritchey will be serious contender in a 'Future Retrobike BOTM'. It is way post 2000 right?


not sure if the frame is '99 or '00 but definately not younger (parts are)... worth the shot?

your not gonna disqualify me are you ? :shock:


No

I gonna ban you :twisted:

kidding

I have added it, but I have to admit that what is considered Vintage by todays standards is a bit stretched by doing so.

On the other hand: One could argue more bikes submitted balance on the edge.

But serious, i won't be offended if it's not in this month's BOTM.
There are plenty of bikes worth the place in the list more than mine.
Don't cross the edge, i really understand, no problem.
I'll just wait a few years, i'm not gonna sell it :D

Oof, i'm really going to have to think about this one.

The Merlin is fantastic and probably the obvious choice. Stick Legs' Pace is a fine example of squaretubedness and the Explosif is totally spot-on (look at that saddle!) but at the moment nothing's beating the RTS for me!

I'm going to vote nearer the end...

Hi Jon,

That is a VERY nice ride you have there. I think it is best to save it for next month. Already 17 votes given. Okay?
