    Maybe someone could post a pic of their Annapurna. I'd love to hear the backstory on how one would end up with one of those.

    Lol! Yep, this thread pretty much plays out like a list of bikes for me to make offers on.


    I didn't know that was one of Tom's personal bikes. That ups the cool factor for sure! I like it.


    I'll post a picture of the one Ritchey I have...not a finished product yet.
    Still waiting for my P-23 to come along.

    I've only needed my helmet twice so far, both times involving wooden items of biological origin. When in Moab or the desert, other parts have taken the hits.

    TR showed up at this charity event without a helmet and maybe because of insurance requirements he needed one. The start/finish was at a well known biker bar so he just borrowed a helmet from one of the biker chicks.

    Looks like they are having the same Rwanda ride in 2007 http://www.50mileride.com/

    It was a very worthy grassroots cause and I'll be riding again with a different Ritchey

    is the guy who wears a standard Giro helmet and regular riding gear dumber than the guy who does the same ride with full body armor and a full face helmet? I dont think so.

    My first, a SoftTail.


    All the parts went to my P-22 (with P-20 decals...should have left well enough alone)


    P-22 Team that was too big for me. Should have kept that anyway too.

    My '82/'83 Annapurna

    Found mine on Ebay back in '99, before many people even cared about vintage mountain bikes. The seller was a Vermont antiques dealer who was selling it on consignment for the owner. (The owner had purchased it at a swapmeet, so I'm at least the 3rd owner) I was the high bidder at approx $300 but the reserve was not met. We worked out a price after the auction for what was a lot back then, but a steal for an Annapurna today.

    This bike is mostly original, except for the Suntour 7-speed freewheel and XC front derailleur, and possibly the Deer Head cantis.

    Full specs and more pics on Oldmountainbikes.com:

    http://www.oldmountainbikes.com/cgi-....cgi?bike=21C2

    Sorry for the crummy pics, but these are older files that I had to resize.

    Another of my Ritchey's. It was stickered with P-22 Team decals, but it ain't a Team and it ain't a P-22. It's a Crazy Pete. A somewhat rare bike from 1995 that was called a P23 in 1994. Fun bike.

    Here's a pic of my '86 Team Comp taken Labor Day weekend 2007. I was on the first day of a three day bike tour.

    I remember the first time I saw one of those. A buddy of mine had just picked it upI
    I was blown away by how cool those bikes were and how well they rode compared to what I was riding at the time. By the time I scraped enough money to get one of them they were discontinued. Love my bike, but always kind of wish I had robbed a bank or something Somehow money seemed to be harder to come by in those days although I seemed to have plenty of time on my hands seems to be the other way around these days. funny how that works.

    I dont admit anything of the sort any more. Steve Potts (the nicest guy ever) threw me out of his shop when I only hinted at a build request for a fillet-brazed Slingshot.

    How could you fall for that nonsense

    LOL! No wonder Steve threw you out of his shop. Jeez, half a friggen bike cut in half again and then bolted back together with a corvette leaf spring and a cable holding it together.

    Tom made that bike for me when I worked at the Velomister in LosGatos, it is Mtn Everest 003.

    The wait was over a year and I got that frame and the road frame within two months of each other. I was pretty adamant about the color schemes on both bikes, the E is Emron metal flake root beer fade to las Vegas gold at the dropouts.

    I'm not going to try and deny I didn’t spent my share of time at the roaster, but there it was always rear rubber agenst the wall or curb.

    That paint came off in the bead of Curt's truck under a tarp sneaking under the radar up to China Grade.

    Cool, 88 that would be just before the Loma Prieta quake had it’s way with our Nice-Clean-Marks, and dumped the restaurant up stairs into the shop, crushing all of Tom’s team bikes.

    Did you buy that bike new or acquire it later? Did you ride with us back in the day?

    Yeppers. That sure was a fun bike like that. Sadly its still uncabled with its new flat bar attire.

    Colker, thanks. I think its a pretty one too. I dont know, I kinda like the black post. Its a fillet brazed stem and I dont think those were ever nickel plated like the TIG'd versions. Yes, its an 18".

    Yeah that one. It rode great. Got me hooked on off road drop bars.

    And just a tad too small as an 18" frame....hence my quest for a 19-20" frame. Not sure why that weirds Hollister out.

    After the quake we moved from East Main to the little white building across from Steamers on University. You might be thinking of that location.

    Here is my Skyliner. I loved crconsulting's paint on his sc. I was going to get one of my team 23 painted like it then this fell in my lap for an awesome price. Full xt with king hus and hs. Presumably one of the last built. Before it I had never see a ritchey with an oversized headset. Seems locical for a tandem. No pun intended. Its also built with logic tubing versus straight prestige. Wish it had fb stem. Some day I'm gunna get a custom threadless fb bullmoose built for it.

    Yeah, I had to get rid of the bottles before they made me build a bike around them. Paint is still nowhere as nice of a job as cr's but it's close enough for me. Oh and my wife is not 7 foot tall. I just snapped the shots and forgot to lower the post. Not that there is anything wrong with tall girls.

    No this is the one that I've had since I was 15-16. The basket case was a victim of low res bad photography. Lucky me. Plus the guy selling the other worked 2 blocks from me so the price was extremely good. They guy who had that one traded a case of beer for it when he worked for sram here in Chicago. The basket case is getting ready for paint too. It took me along time to get all the house paint off of that one though.

    Too late one is painted the other already has a paint scheme picked out too. Guess I'll just have to wait till my 20 inch super comp comes in for the clear job.

    When ritchey was first prototyping the p23 at the show he had the proto clearcoated. Looked pretty nice. but from what I'm told with out the primer the clear wont stick to well. Powder clear does not require primer though, but there is no way I'd ever powder any of my frames.
