Nice Chris 8)

Have you been hurtling around the Quantocks on this yet then?

Matt.

Hi Matt,
Thanks for the post. Its not been out yet, i've still got to sort the forks out on it, which are very soggy.
Have you been out much recently?

I haven't really 'been out' on bike recently, only daily commute and the odd bimble.

I do have a few (too many) projects on the go though-'89 Trek 970,
Kona Kilauea, Diamond Back Ascent EX + a Stumpjumper I've been 'doing' for too long now.

I'm sure you'll find the GT a lot easier going and more nimble than the Orange.I'd personally put some rigid forks on it, job done and lots less hassle.

Take care.

Very nice - always wanted a Richter.

And Kikaha, that red one is superb!

Nice find Chris.

Richter is for all intents and purposes the same frame as the Avalanche of that year.

Very nice frame – rides well
