    New Fillet Brazed Ritchey on eBay

    I know this is against form guidelines, but oh well. This is a fund raiser auction and should be publicized.

    A fillet brazed Ritchey P-650b is being auctioned off to benefit NICA. There are only a handful of these frames that have been made by Tom (most are made in Asian and imported). This frame was made for a NAHBS show.

    The full sale price goes to NICA (National Interscholastic Cycling Association), an organization that gets kids into biking and bike racing.

    Bid early and bid often!

    And if anyone asks about the fork and why it does not come out of the top of the head tube, please post the answer here.

    Do you know all the geo numbers on that 17in or if it has a threaded BB?

    Frame geo is the same as the current model: https://ritcheylogic.com/media/wysiw...b-geometry.pdf

    BB is threaded. The only "real" difference this and the current model (besides being build by Tom) is that it needs a fork with a straight 1-1/8" sterrer and the new frame uses a tapered sterrer.

    Wow! Someone got a deal... under $1,200 for a hand-made fillet brazed frame from Tom.

    I just missed meeting Ritchey at the paint shop when he picked up those bike show frames. Rick the painter did a pink stumpy team for me. He does incredible work.

    Rick painted these Chris Chance frames

    There is a lot of reenactment going on there w/the paint. I am sure those bikes can stand by themselves in ride quality, technology, geometry etc... Itīs entirely personal, just my opinion ad i am sure Chance and their customerīs opinion is worth a lot more.. but why go back to the good ol days paint?
    i like the Ibis attitude: their new stuff is completely different to the old ibis though why the same names mojo and hakkalugi? the old mojo was an all around hardtail. The new one is a specialist bike.
    Anyways... itīs just me personal feeling.
    Ritchey now is doing the same thing w/ the names of old bikes applied to new models.
