More pics :) Will try post some better pics later

I think I might Stick with the Ritchey theme, Currently has Ritchey Stem, Bars, Seat pin and QR.

Will change the Force bars to WCS in time. Add some white Ritchey Grips.
Maybe change the Black seat post to a silver Ritchey one.

Would like to change the Cranks to Ritchey but not sure if this is possible as current cranks are Microdrive not sure Ritchey made these.

Need to change the front shifters from 8 speed to 7.

It came all the way from france,

Any more info on the pace forks would help, do I need to grease these, also the back brake brake is sticking, Iv'e just had it apart tonight and GT85 liberally.

I also need to get some candy red touch up paint, any clues who I would get this from.

Saw this in the flesh on Friday, and it is in truly amazing condition 8) 8)

Beautiful colour too, I was certainly impressed 8) 8) 8)

If you want to stick with the Ritchey theme, then maybe some Ritchey cranks/rings as well :wink: 8)

Thanks for your kind replys people, Im definetly going to continue the Ritchey theme.

I have:-

Ritchey:- QR front & back
Ritchey:- S/post, might change this to a silver Ritchey
Ritchey:- Bars and Stem. Bars will eventually be changed to Ritchey WCS.
Ritchey:- Rims Vantage Pro

Need:-

Ritchey:- Grips, was thinking white.
Ritchey:- S-post QR in silver

Ritchey:- Compact cranks, or could I run normal ritchey cranks with this LX drive chain?. I dont think this is possible am I wrong?
Ritchey Canti's.




The colour Scheme will be silver and Red with maybe a very small splash of gold.

Maybe some new white graphics for the forks and some new white Ritchey badge decals ( the small ones not full badge size).

One big problem, since riding her, the Bottom bracket seems to have come loose slightly, how would I tighten a Klein BB?.

Do I need special tools ? help please

+2 that. More likely the crank. The Klein BB is almost bomb proof.

Retroklein and Tintin,

When I hold both cranks and rock, there is definetly play, this would suggest a lose BB?.

I have had the drive side crank of to clean)

The BB is still silky smooth though.


What have I broken now


:shock: lol

is there play in the axle with the crank arms off?? if that's the case, your bearings could be shot... but I doubt it somehow, seeing as your bike is in such good nick ...

your bottom bracket should be good for years of punishment :twisted:

what about the tapers on your crank arms? do they look worn or out of shape? maybe if the previous owner rode them loose, then that could be why... hard to tell without actually getting hold of it
...I doubt you've broken anything
