    This is a Ritchey P21 I got from another member . it had rust issues and needed a re spray .

    Once the chainstays were fixed , I had the frame and forks painted . I got the decals from Ritchey in Switzerland .

    Since the pictures were taken , I changed the bottle cage for a more classic design .

    Very nice!! I love that paint scheme.

    WHats going on here? Is this bizzaro VRC? Guess I gunna have to put the **** back in country. Nice save on the frame set but, I have to question your choice in stems? I mean unless that your favorite stem of all time of coarse. PM me if your having problems finding a ritchey in you size. Might be able to point you in the right direction. You gots ta sorten that front cable it will remove some of that mushy brake feel i'm sure. Level the seat to save the boys and flatten your bars out to save your arms. Sorry not everything is cherrys here at VRC. These guys will snap back soon enough. I'll just have to play the part of a-hole here for awhile till the come to. Oh and welcome to VRC. Enjoy your stay but dont get to comfortable.
    So do you have any before pictures? What happened to the chainstays?

    Thanks for all the comments .

    The ringle cage has gone , but doubt you will want it as it used to be purple before I dropped it in acid to make it silver then painted it black with a spray can . missing the L bit too .

    Yes the stem is a bit of a sore point , but I cant find a Ritchey stem of same colour and dimensions , with integrated cable stop . There is not enough room to put a cable stop . If you can get me one I ll be very grateful . Thanks for the advice on front brake .
    Seat and bars were adjusted before first ride .

    it weights 10.5kg .

    Some Megabytes would be nice too , but those Hutchinson were nice and clean .


    Here are pics of damage and repair :

    before :



    and after :




    Painter did not find any issues .

    I wont ride this bike an anger , so not too worried about it .
