Jamis Diablo, I can understand that your heard is bleeding, seeing a jamis being used as a base for a copy...
Once again I can't see any problems in creating an imitation of a famous bike to relaise one's dream. I'm not going to sell the bike on ebay or elsewhere, because I usually build up bikes just for me and not making money with them.
If your misgivings would be right, I wouldn't have posted all my work here on retrobike an on a german bike-forum ...
And I've used ritchey-decals to improve the illusion, sitting on a real ritchey. My point of view is that just an illusion is better than nothing. And as a mentioned before, maybe I'll find an original and offered frame. In the meantime I'm riding this frame.
I know that my project is polarising, but I haven't any bad purposes.
I didn't mean to imply that you trying to rip anyone off or were up to no good. While there is the possibility that the bike gets sold, and then a few more times maybe, and then represented on eBay as a Ritchey, that isn't the hard part to swallow. The hard part is, why not just repaint the Jamis and dress it in Ritchey parts?
It is pretty though. Nice work.
