    Ritchey P22 project...



    Gonna be a long road til completion on this build as I do not have correct components... But I cannot wait to begin!!

    Seems like there is plenty of info online regarding the P21 or P23's. Are the P22's considered rare or more scarce for some reason? Any insight is very helpful!

    Thanks!

    That thing went for way way under market! Nice pick up. I trust we'll be seeing it at K'Ville 2013?

    Glad it included the original matching rigid fork too. My size and a great color...I was reeeeally tempted to bid.

    Not any more or less scarce than 23 or 21's I don't think. If you decide to go period correct, you'll have a nice light, user friendly classic. Full M732/Ritchey Logic build.

    Nice score, I was tempted as well. Using the decals to I.D. I believe you have a 1995. TR took a P23 frame set added a Logic Pro build kit and called it a P22. He was able to get the weight down from 23 lbs to 22 lbs. Here's an excerpt from the 95 catalog.

    Ben! Nice pick up! Wait until you ride it....it's so much fun. I was wondering if we were going to see that one again.

    Congratulations!

    Thanks for the info! I found this one too.

    Briefly searching bike part "sources", it doesn't look like it will be too easy to find the missing bits either.

    Nah, full WCS/Logic/XT build will be easy. Might take you to the wire before K'Ville....but its doable.

    It auctioned off 2x so I'd say that's about market value. How is the condition of the fork?

    Certainly a good price....Digging it!
    A great project....
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Dont know if this will help you out much, but here are the extra's that came along with this gem.


    The forks are as described and in perfect order and completely original. The bars and stem that came along are not so original. I don't know anything about the 3T bars and the control stem with Ritchey sticker/logo on top seems quite odd. I may actually use the bars as they are also in very good condition. The stem will most likely go into the parts bin.

    the stem is worth some $ on ebay since it has cable hanger.. get rid of the handlebar and get a ritchey! no ifs or buts.
    it's hard to find a 130mm wcs stem but the 140 is easy. go figure.
    i would build w/a white selle turbo and xt everywhere maybe go suntour on the headset just because...
    (does it fit you?)

    Dunno, have not ridden it yet!

    At 6ft, it will be very close.

    Hmmm... 6'0" seems mighty tall for that frame.

    A 6'0" person is taller than average. I'd say that that frame was smaller than average. A 6-foot rider should likely be on at least a 19 or 20 inch frame. I'm less than 6'1" and had a 21" frame with a 135mm stem and it fit me well.

    I'm 5'9 and my 18" P-bikes fit me like a glove.

    I love the paint on that one.

    6' 1/2" on a 21" frame; 135mm stem and lots of post showing:

    All things being almost equal...seems it is partially personal preference as to whether you like the a racey ride all bent over like that.
    Somec is like the digital Zunow

    Bar height is crucial.
