Default From the beginning...

Here's a fun one from my collection

1981 Ritchey

a picture is worth a 1000 words

sold this bike back in the day, tracked down the buyer and got it back to restore 30 years later...

Ride?

hmm nice for the day it was made....

a lot different than a fat....

Road bike parts function well

68 degree headtube slack angles longs stays...

great going downhill

a little clumsy at slow speeds, much nicer going faster

odd shaped bars for my hands no adjustments to be made...

outstanding braking power with magura levers
