    Since its raining "Minor" Ritchey Content

    Since its raining and I feel SO left out cause you guys are posting super cool stuff lately and I have no new projects to share and haven't had any for a while I might add...

    Not that I'm complaining or anything since all you locals (and not so local) are sucking the craigslist dry

    I guess thats a good sign though, as it shows just how popular this place has become

    I was going through some of my "crap" (can I say that here?) to find some roller cam stuff and I discovered these. See what old age will do for you! I forgot I even had these stickers.

    So I noticed the stickers changed from handmade vs handcrafted by Tom Ritchey, Hmmmm, I never noticed this before.......
    When did this change? Anyone know?

    The "Handcrafted" decals are for the tig'd bikes and the "Handmade" for the fillet brazed bikes. I could use a couple of those white headtube decals, any for sale or trade?

    Duhhh Thanks for the info. I never knew that.....


    I'm kind of a "whorder" so not really for sale, but would be open to trade if you had a different color than the ones I have....

    I see them on ebay though so they are available every now and then.

    btw they are clear with black outline if those are the ones were talking about.

    ps I don't want to get expelled for being off topic so PM me

    Does KB already have a minty fresh Ritchey that doesn't need decals? I would like to see his other Ritchey(s) that need decals.

    Well, there are a few projects in the works I'll be needing a "Handmade" decal for sure , usually I can get these directly from Ritchey.

    Do you mean you can get these from the Ritchey company, or directly from the man?

    A LD should never be near a rack. So wrong.

    BP, nice bike, as usual. Is it my eyes or does the top tube slope down?
