Ritchey beakaway 56cm from around 2005 (maby 2006)

I got this bike after rideing a 1992 Colnago Mater Piu. The Colnago had soul but I wantet a bike that it was easy to do air travel with... so this made me go for the Ritchey. I have tried different forms of setup. First a Dura Ace 7400 compleate with mavic sub wheels and Ritchey WCS parts. But the current build is with:

Ritchey pro carbon fork
Chris King headset
New Ultimate alu stem (110) and seatpost
Selle Italia SLR Carbon saddle
Tune Mig/Mag w/Mavic Open Pro, Dt Revolution (Champ in drive side, rear)
Ritchey Ti sticks
Dura Ace 7800 sti
Dura Ace 7900 Breakes
Dura Ace 7800 Rear mesh
Ultegra Front mesh
Dura Ace 7800 pedals
Continental gp4000, Latex tubes
FSA carb bars
Race Face Cadence compact cranks w/ ti/Carbon rings
Token BB (not any good!)
Titanum bolts all over (besides lower joint)


7,9kg complete

I have been putting down miles on it at home in Denmark, but also, Germany, Island, Switzerland, France & Spain. Cant wish for a better bike to travel with!

Agree! And it makes you want to go explore with the bike. It cost no extra to bring it on the plane as it will go into normal luggage (not odd-size). The case packs most of your gear too (helmet, shoes...), so you can just have a small cabin-roller on the side ----- and the ride is like a dream!

Wow, impressed with the bike and with the weight :D
Do you use it mostly for road or does it see dirt as well?

Thanks for the kind words... I use it only for road. But Ritchey makes a breakaway cross frameset tak willtake you into more dirty adventures... It really performs like a normal GOOD steel frame. So dont let the brakaway design keep to down.
Cheers
