    You can pick up a stem from http://www.firstflightbikes.com Finding an original Ritchey FD seatpost is going to be difficult. There's a bunch of Ritchey collectors out there looking for those

    sorry I need a 1" 150 with the built in hanger. I have a old wtb cable hanger but the steerer is to short to use it.

    Chris, I'll trade you two Ritchey cable hangers for your WTB hanger. I could use it. Heck, I might even have the Ritchey stem you need. I'll check.

    Chris, I likely have the stem that you're after. I'll trade it for your "too large" P-20.

    I like those Ritchey posts quite a bit. They're a great looking post, and seem to work just fine.

    Funny how a Ritchey thread brings out all the Ritchey sharks

    I was wondering if the seatpost that came on my 87 Ritchey TimberWolf was original or not. It has the "TR" on the top and was made by Kalloy?????

    You can find the specs on the FFB site. I am pretty sure that the TR post is newer.

    I don't believe that Ritchey was making posts in '87. It likely would have come with a SunTour post.

    That makes sense, The prior owner did put some newer parts on it, including "Logic" decals, and they were obvoiusly not avail in 1987.
