    Even knobby tires does wonders for the bike.

    Put that thread back in the VRC and not in the manufacturer forum. You'll get more info/attention over here.

    Here are a couple of updated pics on my P-23 Team. It took a while, but I finally found a more appropriate fork for the bike. Gone is the white Bridgestone fork, and a fillet brazed red Ritchey fork has taken it's place. I have to admit it looks better.

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

    I just picked up one of these, I was wondering are the team models made by Tom himself? Are both the team and regular p-series made in the USA or? Thanks!!!

    The fillet brazed "Team" frames were made by Tom. The TIGed frames were made in Japan with some finish work done in the US.

    That looks a lot like Mr Claus' a few posts down.

    Your updated one looks a ton better, Laffeaux. What a relief!

    Agreed nice one, you don't see them often with CBR cranks, but I like it. Also sweet you swapped for it, enjoy the ride and wish mine was a team, but mine's in super shape. Dig it

    I like that: well proportioned, nice patina and a "i am ready to work" attitude. Extra points for the standard frame pump. Every bike needs a frame pump. Black rims fit nicely.

    Rode very nice, stiff! It has a 48t chain ring on it too but I got used to it. I added the handle bar, pump, and tires the rest was as I got it. Took a few days to get the seat post out though... already dirty as it should be.

    I don´t care for the 48 but i need the 36. Those 32 mid rings don´t cut it.

    Does anyone know what size the p-22 decal on the top tube should be? I have 1995 p-22 (I think).

    I am trying to get a replacement via Ritchey P-21/22/23 Top Tube Decals - Set of 2 (sku 395p) - VeloCals

    Here's a tiny one a friend of mine has decided to sell. He has the brakes kicking around somewhere. I'm not sure which "P" it is though. Anybody?

    From Laffeaux's excellent Ritchey fansite:

    https://ritchey.vintagebicycledatabase.com/models.php

    "After several years of identifiable serial numbers, Ritchey reverted back to less decipherable serial numbers. Throughout much of the early 1990s the "P-series" frames had numbers that don't seem to mean anything. An excpetion were the US-made fillet brazed frames: the Everest and the P-series Team frames, which often follow the 1980s scheme..."

    After riding this bike for a spell it blows the doors off all my other vintage steeds, I can now see what the hype was all about. What a bike!
