Been on the site a few years now and as most of my bikes are from when I got into it early '90 started to want something older like what the American guy's where posting. When al posted a Ritchey Frame for sale I thought why not so after a lot of luck and help from guy's in America, Germany. Israel [ebay] and U.K. cycle jumbles here is the result.

Who are you?? Never heard of you mate... didn't know you could take photos either... :shock: :lol:

It's not a bad older bike for an older rider I s'pose... ;-)

Next you'll be telling us that it cost you next to nothing... :roll:

Mr K

PS. At least the wheels weren't CK-built, otherwise I think I would have been sick!!

Very nice, sympathetic build looks great. Always wondered myself how that kind of build rides compares to a more standard hardtail.
