    Ritchey P-23-------many photos.

    here's my latest finished project. this one was pretty simple. i changed the tires, saddle and bars and called it done. it's nice when they are quick and simple like that. i didn't even need to clean it. just dusted it off a bit. i wish they were all that simple.

    How high is that front derailleur? You know we'll be nit-picking

    Great looking - looks like it wants to race!

    Sweet ride Sky. I always wanted one of those. I remember when those came out, I was told they'd only be good for one season of hard racing. The tubeset was so thin that they would fatigue and then you were risking a frame failure. Isn't an MB-0 the same tubeset with lugs? Anyway, that's a beautiful bike.

    yeah, i know. i should have fixed that before posting photos probably. i just need to dig around to find a Suntour XC-Pro derailleur before i waste my time tuning up the front derailleur. i have time. it seems i'm going to be off the mountain bike for a few weeks.

    wonderfull.. that bike is hypnotic.i remember the first time i saw pics of a comp23.. red, very similar. i was hooked.
    all suntour.. didn't know ritcheys could be sold w/ suntour.
    others mentioned the derr.. i find the stem a tad too long for the height of the saddle.

    "good eyes. i'll be on the look out for a 20cm shorter stem."

    It's your lucky day! I happen to have a negative 50mm stem right here. Negative 90 degree angle of course.

    Fantastic score.

    Much, much better than the original pictures would have suggested...

    Suntour and Mavic on a Ritchey is pretty odd, but it'll do!

    Is the rear a Mavic too?

    yeah, it's a 20". it's technically my size. now personally i ride bikes that are one size smaller than than i should be riding but with the slighly shorter stem i'll still have a good time on it. now to get my other 4 Ritchey projects finished.

    It seems utterly silly that I don't have a Ritchey in my collection right now. This thread isn't helping.

    ritcheys are cool to be ridden slightly bigger. at least that's what thomas frischnecht would do.. 20in was his size of choice. w/ a 130 stem. tomboy is 5'10.
