    Does this Annapurna belong to anybody we know? Annapurna's are probably the most sought after Ritcheys. I know someone who would sleep on the couch for a year if he could get one

    I've got a line on a anipurna that has the original fillet bullmoose bars as well as a fillet stem thats built with a complete campy euclid group. Cant wait to hit the right price with him. Just got his CBR cruiser a few months ago. Absolutly georgous. I think i'd strip it and clear power it.

    I dunno, not me ... I think the whole point of the extra work on the Annapurnas was the look of the faux lugs. To strip and expose the work is like giving away the magician's secret IMHO.

    Ritchey Annapurna

    I can't believe Bob Brown published pics of my Ritchey without clothes, the horror!

    So yeah, I've got this Ritchey that Bob painted for me last winter. It was custom ordered by another Mpls shop owner back in the day, sold, sold, sold again and eventually made its way to me on a trade or something. A Ritchey dealer (even owned, rode and raced a couple) in the 90's...they aren't my favorite so It hung in the shop dungeon a few years, was forgotten, then found again when I cleaned out to close the business. Bob happened to be standing there so I handed it over and said make this purple (with yellow decals)beast all black, and maybe I'll ride it! So he did (like 7 months later), I do, and it's really a sweet ride!

    Obviously I knew not of the Annapurna or it would have been refurbished and re-sold, since that's what I did for a living. So, unfortunately I really like the ride and have been riding it more than any other bike this summer. I mean like riding to it to work, to the bar, letting the old lady borrow it, etc.!!! If it's really worth something I should consider selling it...

    So what's it worth?!

    I've done some research, sourced an orginal catalog etc. and this is what (I think) I know about it. It's a 22", serial #2A4, early 1985 or older because it has the Ritchey press fit bottom bracket. It has the unicrown fork and the touring braze-on options. I have the original fillet-brazed bolt-on bull-moose but it was removed (quill removed from fork) by a previous owner. The angle is really steep anyway so I'm using a 'Ritchey Mountain Bikes' black anno alloy bull-moose bar by Nitto (very cool). The group appears to be a stock Ritchey kit but from '87 (Shimano XT 6, Magura levers, bolt on hubs, Suntour XC pedals, etc.). So I don't know the exact year...

    The original seatpost and bottom bracket were missing but I found a NOS black Shimano XT and sourced bearings and a spindle from Phil Wood.

    The frameset was stripped, checked and repainted black. The paint isn't Cyclart quality, but it's not too bad. There are now a few paint chips but nothing major. There is a slight dent on the seat tube. The original components are in excellent, near amazing condition and the new stuff is well, pretty new.

    Anyway, my laptop's battery is dying...

    I'll post pics or make a webpage in the next day or so.

    Thanks much,

    -John
