Lovely Jubbly! This, to me, nicely strikes the ever-so tricky balance between vintage looks and modern practicality. Ride your Ritchey in good health, sir.

First few rides.......... well she is soooooooo sweet.

Climbs like a dream, with no flex evident. light weight means she is easy to flick around and the front end is easily lifted for logs drops etc.
The wheel size is perfect, rolls over bumps and roots but they are easily spun up to speed with quick sprints.

Overall perfect :D
