    I think Ritchey might still have those. I got an older version from them a bit back. Cheap too...

    84 Team Comp 19"

    Serial # 9C10

    Got this with approximately 260 original miles (original odometer, see photo) on it. Owned by a little old lady, literally, in Portland, OR.

    It came to me with wierd plastic 27 inch fenders, a Sachs Huret odometer, comfort seat, Specialized Street Stomper tyres, Jim Blackburn rear rack and original receipt. I took all of these things off and saved them.

    It needed a good clean and grease.

    The paint is 99% and the overall condition is near perfect.

    I put on Mathauser brake pads, cables inners and outers, grips, tyres (just temporary until I find some interesting period ones), and a different seat. I have and will keep all the other original bits that I replaced.

    LeicaLad noted and wrote on this forum that for some reason it seems these bikes, 84 Team Comp, were well cared for or not ridden much. This one certainly fits that.

    Thanks for the comments!!!

    It was fun to restore and have it come out so nice.

    I have added few more photos including the original receipt and the odometer.

    If I can make a request....I would love to see your bikes in its own threads because, frankly, you are quite the restoration guy.

    Just a thought!

    I can only imagine what your other bikes look like!

    Do you have pics of the full frame? The "A" was used for early Everest frames which morphed into the Team Comp frame, and later was used to designate Annapurna frames. Seeing the details at the seat cluster and the head tube "lugs" would help determine what decals the bike likely came with.

    I have seen most of Sqrootof2's bikes. All I can say is as nice as his pictures are, seeing them in person was amazing. Every one of them are over the top beautiful.

    Looks like you did it again.

    Nice.....

    Mystery Rider

    OK Ritchey fans...identify this rider! This is a signed Ritchey Race Jersey I dug out of the archives this afternoon, vintage 95-96 if my memory serves me. I know for sure that three of the four signatures belong to Shari Kain, Thomas Frischknecht, and Warren Sallenbach, but I will be damned if I can remember who the other rider is! First MTBR member to identify the fourth gets kicked in the junk by me!

    Tig P-23's usually have 3 digit #, Tig P-22's usually have 4 digit # but not always

    usually Tig P-21's have a P before a 3 digit # like P479., but not always

    Team P series bikes have frame size, P, and a 2 or 3 digit number , like 8P18, but not always

    If it has a non Ritchey rear drops outs, its an early P-23, if it has Ritchey drop outs it's a '91 or later P23 or P22 or ?

    See this list of serial #'s for P series bikes: Old Mountain Bikes: Ritchey Bike Listing

    Hope this helps

    LOL x 3. You're going to need a big, big bag for an extra long churro for the bars.

    p.s. don't say you need a bullmoose, I know you do...it just didn't fit into my plans for this post.

    p.p.s somebody get the man a FB'ed bullmoose bar! I'm tired of seeing all his sad little parts in bags.

    Ruthless bunch. Each little bag was marked Everest as it came off the bike. Have everything for this build except proper wheels. Came with quill style bar/stem. It's the Competition that needs the clamp on Ritchey bars. I buy my baggies in bulk. The wife comes out to the garage when she needs one for her sandwich. And my storage is much less organized than Halaburts (although I heard rumor he has misplaced whole projects on occasion)

    1B229 Timberwolf 85?

    This bike was donated to Community Bikes and I bought it from collector who bought it from the Donation place after they went over it to make it roadworthy and ridable. Not sure what happened in that process but sure as the Pope is a catholic the bull moose bars probably went out the back door. Unless…..the gooseneck stem [with a Anlun emblem] is original?? The bike's paint is definitely original with no down tube decals and just the head tube badge. I really like the TR 4130 decal is just screams RITCHEY!!!!!!!!!

    When I first started visiting VRC and developing an addiction for old mountain bikes, my first must have grail bike to find was an old Everest. Well, been working on Big Red for a few years now and finally got him presentable:















    With the pressure of needing a ride for the upcoming meet at Keyesville, I cut a few corners to finish the project. Nothing I won't come back and change after the meet, but they stick out to me and my desire to stay to my initial goal. My goal was simple. Keep it to 1981 and don't overdo it. Simple, clean, no over polishing of parts, but a nice display of a period correct bike showing natural patina accrued over thirty+ years of riding. Rest assured hours of meditation, consideration and elbow grease went into each part before it made it's way onto the frame.

    Special thanks to a few people here on VRC who helped with sourcing the bike and a few of the parts. You know who you are. Thank you!
