Ok, so I'm bummed to have to do this, but recent back surgery means bills need to be paid and riding priorities need to be shifted.
So, I'm selling my circa 1997 Ritchey Swiss Cross. 56cm, center-to-center, or 58.5cm center to top. Top tube is 56cm, center-to-center.
The bike wasn't extremely well taken care of when I bought it, lots of careless chips and scratches. I made sure no new ones were made on my watch. I tried to take pictures of the main ones on the head tube/top tube. It also had a super random spattering of components like Avid Single Digit 3 short brake calipers, random steel road bars, mismatched Shimano wheels.
-Frame/Fork: Original Ritchey Swiss Cross
-Wheels: Rolf Vector Comp
-Tires: Continental Cyclocross race 700x35
-Front/Rear Brake: Paul Components Touring Canti's + Paul Comp front cable hanger
-Headset: Chris King 2Nut (Original Ritchey one was beat, and super notched, but I'll include it as well)
-Stem: Older 90mm Cinelli (7mm top bolt) (I also have the Ritchey stem that came with the bike)
-Bars: Salsa Bell Lap 42cm
-Cranks: Ritchey Logic w/Surly Stainless ring (I have original double chainrings as well)
-BB: Original Stock Ritchey (it's pretty beat)
-Cassette: Shimano 9 speed
-Rear Der: Older Ultegra
-Shifters/Brake Levers: Older Ultegra (the rear shifter is on it's way out)
-Seatpost: Original Ritchey
I know this bike is showing a lot of signs of wear with the components and all that, but the frame is rock solid. No dents or anything like that. The bike rides smoother than I ever thought steel could, and eats up trails like nobody's business. I guess it rides roads nicely too, but it really excels at smoothing bumps out on the dirt.
Let me know if you have any questions about anything regarding the bike. I'm selling it as is because I have no reason to keep any of the components on it. Keep them, sell them, whatever. Anyways, I can provide more pictures, measurements, history (all that I know at least).
I'm asking $1500 plus shipping. International buyers welcome.
Bike is currently located in Boise, ID, U.S.A.
