Enjoyed this thread so much too. I have a similar classic early Ritchey frame, that the thread has inspired me to restore in similar fashion.
I would hardly dare ride it now, it belongs in the Orange' museum of fame :wink: Well done.

I have a small mini pump thing. BITD I did a race on salisbury plain with a full length pump stashed behind the seat tube like I'd seen it done in the magazines - except this wasn't california it was salisbury plain. It wasn't until half way through the last lap that I realised that the pump had been worn through with clay soil stuck to the tyres :evil: I was totally knackered by then :lol:

I one did a fifty mile reliability trial, lost the pump in the first 20 mins, got 25 miles in, got a flat, lost the pack, and had to walk for 25 miles, (before mobile phones) and not a bloody phone box in site.., i know how it feels.
