    Come on guys. Those wheels look awesome on THAT bike. Better than a thunder disc would.
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims 80's vintage 32 or 36
    Salsa or similar stem. 1" threadless. 120 with rise.

    I wonder how many of these bikes TR produced, he supported the stem with his race team but not the frames. The prettiest of the ugly duckling group.

    A riding buddy of ours came and set up a little photo area upstairs and shot a dozen or so bikes. After I post all of those bikes, it is back to the concrete wall!!

    Nice shot / presentation. I dig the wheels too. Kind of homage to what softride does with TT and ironman bikes. Paint is unique... cool bike.

    I'm feelin the love....Those wheels will double as meat slicers...

    Quite a few of us team Ritchey riders utilized the entire Softride(SR)bikes,especially for long days of training,being a transition era(late 80's-early 90's) from rigid to suspension.(many of us had-have lower back ailments)
    The closest thing I've gotten to actual #'s of SR's from TR that he produced was 100, which included the 2 ea we team riders rec'd for training-racing ...

    As far as the ugly duckling comment, eye of the beholder ...

    I hadn't heard a number before. 100 sounds reasonable though. I don't remember seeing any other Ritchey branded ones, couple of Breezers and a bunch of Softride ones though.

    I think Sully has about 80 of them.

    Jeff, you've seen a bunch of Otis ones too.

    The two sided has to be the coolest. Seen a few here in Nor Cal, mostly road. Rick at D&D does amazing work.

    [QUOTE=First Flight;8148936]I hadn't heard a number before. 100 sounds reasonable though. I don't remember seeing any other Ritchey branded ones,


    Here's some that are in my stable...(current total of SR bikes owned by me=12)

    http://www.oldmountainbikes.com/cgi-...ke=none%284%29

    http://www.oldmountainbikes.com/cgi-...cgi?bike=AS054

    http://www.oldmountainbikes.com/cgi-....cgi?bike=S007

    http://www.oldmountainbikes.com/cgi-....cgi?bike=T500

    Again, eye of the beholder...

    FWIW, I still ride weekly 3 of the 4 bikes shown, only reason I don't ride the sm red 26' wheeler is it's not my size.
    I fully acknowledge just ridin ain't racin, and if I was still in the competitive arena, I might consider moto tech on my bicycle....(main reason being for ski lift DH's and I'd have a mechanic followin me around to fix the constantly crappin out hydraulic's)
