Default Another Aquafade

Yo,


Have owned one of my dream bikes for about a year now and thought it was about time I posted some photos on here.


[size=2]Anyway, its YOSM066 (an ex Jez frame) built up with Bomber Z2

Beautiful! This has to go down in MTB history as one of the coolest factory paint schemes out there.

I really dig your bike - love those short, straight handlebars. Very retro!

Definitely a nice build! I like the 2x9 gripshift setup. From what year or period is that system?

I think the 2x9 system dates from about 1997. It's listed in the 1997 Ritchey catalogue.

The Ritchey components were on the bike when I bought it. They're OK but I'm not a big fan of gripshift systems and think I'll change to a 94 period Shimano setup when I get round to it.

I've been looking for some Ritchey 2x9 parts for a while, so if you ever want to sell them please let me know

Solo,

please remove the pix. the bike is far to beautiful to be looked at. reminds me of Nigel Tuffnel's guitar - "don't look at, don't even point. it can't be played"
