This week I became the proud owner of this little gem it's a 91 model courtesy of jaiden73
have to say I'm very happy with the condition its in for a 21 year old bike! I've changed the saddle not sure which to keep on flight looks better but the turbo is more comfy. Gave it a good polish with aerosol and waxed the frame up. The ride is lovely been a while since I rode a steel frame forgotten how good they feel.

To finish her off I'm gonna look for a nice set of Ritchey Logic embossed 2 finger brake levers, a Ritchey seat post 27.0mm and stick some XT thumbies on but thats about it. I have the thumbies but gonna take some searching to find the rest.Oh and some black Ritchey bars.

Pictures I took early this morning with the flite saddle and this evening with the Turbo.

so are you gonna match the levers with Ritchey canti brakes as well? i have a silver Ritchey Force Lite bar if that's of any interest to you.
