    I'm old. It's my main ride and I need compact cranks for the Wasatch out here. I gave up hoping to find a set of period-correct Ritchey compact cranks. Do the the Cooks look familiar? The rear der is temp until I find a clean & tight ( ) M735 SGS.

    Seatpost is an old XT. I don't ask much of my seatposts, although an older Ritchey / Nitto in black wouldn't break my heart.

    I did a job for this guy, and he said he knew me. He told me he bought a Ritchey MountainBike in 1983. That made him the third original Ritchey owner to tell me that in just the last week.

    But he went one better. He pulled out a piece of paper in a plastic protective sleeve, and said, "Are these your initials?" Yep, he had my handwritten receipt from 1983, and his bike is on display at a store in San Rafael. I have removed his address from the receipt, because astonishingly enough, it's the same place where he now lives.

    It don't mean a feng if it ain't got that
    shui.

    I ran across the receipt for my Ritchey recently - bought it in Feb '89 for $650 at the LLBean store in Freeport ME. I must have been reading too many bike magazines or just had winter fever to buy a bike in Maine in February...it was my first mtn bike, a blue "Outback" with yellow lettering, the bullmoose bars, biopace chainrings, rear u-brakes & really big brake levers. Added a yellow rear rack & a yellow snake-shaped bottle cage. Loved it. Gave it to someone who had no car so he could get to work, but might have to get it back now that he's driving.

    Good thing this thread isn't titled My Random Ritchey Component Auctions on Ebay.

    Time to go back to Retrobike.

    Here is a poor pic of my current stash, it's not much but I figured I might as well point the thread back in the right direction. The blue complete bike is an 86 (or so) Timber Comp, all original-the light is useless, heavy, and ugly but it's been there since it was new and I figured it might as well stay. I need to clean the bike and put some of the parts back on, but it's all there and I love it although it's really too small for me.

    The red one is an early Ascent (I believe, it's tig and fillet, the frame is stamped '202'-nothing else). Ritchey 4130 tubing, chainstay brakes-but no 'Ascent' decal or evidence it was ever there. I bought the frame and fork for my girlfriend, I'm not going exactly period correct with it, but it will be close. All the components will eventually be black, I need to get them anodized via my employer.

    Frames are an '88 or so Outback and an '84 or so Timber Comp. I bought them more out of curiosity than anything else......

    I'll post some decent pics when the TC is cleaned up and put back together and the Ascent is all blacked out.

    Thanks for posting. A lot of opportunity in that photo. Time to find a few donor bikes. I like the blue one with the useless but vintage light.....
    T
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Ritchey Fillets Rule

    My first Ritchey was a Fillet and here is my second: A Team P-23 in it's original colors, as it was and has been since I purchased her new in 1990. The location is above Reno Nevada on the Halo Trail; about 7:15pm on the 18th of April this 2010. What a bike.

    The paint, frame, fork, seat post, stem, handlebar, brake levers and brakes are original. This bike has to be considered one of the greatest cross country mountain bikes of all time. This girl is still running strong and climbing as good as they get. Official (Tom) Ritchey Picture Thread-ritchey-p23_halotrail-renonv_2010.jpg
