    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.

    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.

    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Cool Bike, my favorite too!!!
    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.
