    Glad it was you. Sort of.

    Either you were lucky with timing or have some sort of Google Alert set up; you insta-poached that bike.

    Sorry to snatch it out from under you like that. And luckily I had someone e-mail me and let me know that the bike was there. Otherwise I'd not have seen it. I'm really happy to have found it.

    Did anyone here get that sweet 1997 Road Logic out from under me on eBay yesterday (the one in Switzerland)? Damn did I want that thing. LOVED the red/white/blue team paint job on it.

    It was a 50cm, so too small for him.

    My first mountain bike. 1985 Ritchey Commando that I ordered with Phil Wood Hubs.
    The tires are the only things that are not original.
    Check out the first seat post dropper.
    Thanks Dave for getting me started in this great sport!

    At one time I was thinking of selling it to fund the build of a Turner but I decided to hang it on my wall.
    I just remember all the trails I rode with this bike and all the people that would ask me "what in the heck is that thing".

    I'm sure glad you kept it, and I hope you go back to riding it.

    Sorry mods, I'll try again w/o the CL link. I'm not trying to sell anyting.

    Interesting listing for an overpriced Ritchey is the topic of a thread on the Rivendell owners group discussion site. I find it kinda funny how us bike geeks get all caught up in brand loyality. It's our identity. I got soundly ripped here on MTBR for saying how much I liked the A Homer Hilson. The Riv crew is cracking up over a Ritchey. Sure its overpriced, but now that I own a Ritchey, my brand loyality makes me want to rub the 3K bombadil frame price back in their nose.

    In the course of delivering pianos I get into a lot of people's houses. Yesterday a guy asked me if I could take his table saw along with the piano. When I prepared to put the saw in the garage, I came across this.

    Photobucket doesn't want the fork to display right. Tip your head.

    My limited knowledge make me think that the frame is out of date with the components somehow. Am I right?

    A retro resto? Mixto?

    I need Ritchey bullmoose bars!

    It looks to be pretty much untouched to me. Frame and components are 1985(ish).
