it doesnt have the reinforcement gusset on the chainstay as they were fairly renown for cracking there. I didnt break 1 tho :) .. they're like 6lb frames so fairly tough :)

you gotta remeber the time period. ritchey were cranking out frames that were only supposed to last a year. the FRO was marketed as lasting more than a few seasons worth, parker always wanted to overbuild. hell the 6lb weight didnt seem to hold tomac back ;) ... but then nothing really did back then aside from the occasional folded disk drive :D
