    I really like the Specialized Team tyres... front and rear specific and just when you think you have pushed them past their limit they pull you through.

    Here's my 1989 Peugeot Hurricane.

    Featuring Reynolds 531 frame, Tange fork, Mavic wheels, Shimano LX500 groupset, NOS Ritchey speedmax tires.

    I used it a few times for single track riding when I bought it then pulled it apart for a refurbish so now its to good to use as a proper MTB so it'll be a pathway basher now to go alongside my modern hybrid.




    Fitted with Michelin wild run'r 1.4 tires, smooth rolling and comfortable.


    Fitted here with Michelin Advanced wild run'r 1.1 folding tires only 200grams and fast rolling.

    I am glad you found a replacement. Such a beautiful Team also!. Will you put racks on it like your first one. I have been thinking of mounting a rack on one of mine for that utility look. Also, still trying to gather a set of Ritchey Bullmoose bars like you have on the top bike for my Competition project. One nice thing about collecting complete like you did is everything is there and beautiful.No seeking. I really dig your new ride.
    Congratulations!

    Thanks. I do appreciate it.

    I will be putting a nice Blackburn on the rear, but nothing on the front. The fork was never drilled, and I don't think I'll need it, anyway.

    This new bike has given me a few sleepless nights. About a week after I acquired this from a Very Nice collector, a slightly older and more used bike came up at auction. The older bike would have made me happy, probably happier, 'cause I want a rider. Instead, what I have is an utterly NOS bike. I've been in communication with the original owner, too. It has never been ridden. Sigh.

    So, I'm awaiting arrival of replacement tubes and tires, have swapped pedals and saddle. I've even been told to swap out the NOS brake pads. . . Dang. Maybe by next week, I'll get around to taking it for it's very first ride!

    Ordinarily, I would have gone for the other bike, too, but circumstances have left me with extreme cash flow shortages, so I watched it go pretty darn cheap. I simply could not swing it right now. If only it'd come up a few weeks earlier. . . Triple sigh.

    BUT, who am I to be complaining? I have this stunning beauty, and, once tires & tubes arrive, I should be ready to roll.

    I think finding a set of Ritchey bullmoose bars is gonna be nigh onto impossible. Have you considered the Nitto bullmoose bars? I've never seen them in person, but I have noticed them pass by the auction site rather often. I even think the Rivbike site had some colored one on sale for a while. It would seem that they'd be close enough to make a fabulous rider, while you kept the eyes peeled for the elusive originals. No?

    Cheers!

    That Peugeot is really something to look at. Thanks for posting that.

    Far more important~!

    I will find the proper Ritchey bars. No hurry to get the Competition together, and it will probably take a few years. Your Team is so nice it will be a challenge to use it those first few times but no doubt it will be fun. Replace a few of the disposable pieces and go for it. As nice of a wall hanger that is, you might consider finding another one soon. Problem is, you will quickly have a house full of old bikes.

    I have seen a Pug MTB recently on CL. It had been beat up pretty good but looked interesting. the one I saw was blue much less interesting than your pain scheme. Very cool!

    1980 Ritchey/MountainBikes, frame by T.R., wheels by Gary F., cables and final assembly by Charlie Kelly at the MountainBikes shop in San Anselmo, CA. MountainBikes was the first mountain bike-specific company in the world, formed in late 1979 by Charlie Kelly and Gary Fisher. Tom Ritchey supplied the frames and forks, but was not a partner in the company.

    @LeicaLad. Too bad about your early bike. That was truly a significant piece of the lineage from road to dirt. Classic, with the T/As, Mafac brakes, Magura moto levers, etc. Did that come from Gary's shop or from Tom direct?

    WOW! My eyes popped right out of my head when I saw that photo! What a fantastic bike. What serial # is it? Have you entered it into the registry at oldmountainbikes?

    On my original. Sigh. Yeah, I'm still in denial. Bugger who stole it was killed in a motorcycle accident several weeks later, but I wasn't able to track the bike. Possibly fitting karma, but I'd rather have just gotten it back.

    I was able to speak to Tom when I ordered the bike in the summer of 1981, but the purchase was through the shop. I was able to talk straight to Tom, mostly because I was confused about the sizing, and I think I was just lucky that Tom was there when I happened to call. I had several later chats with Charlie about the build, too. I was in the US when I ordered it, but had them ship it to me in Thailand.

    Mine was constructed in about October of 1981, but was among the first to have the Ritchey decals rather than the MountainBike decals. At least that's what I understood.

    Your bike is a stunning wonder. 1980!!! Truly among the very, very, very first ones! I'd be thrilled to see more photos, to boot.

    Thanks for posting!

    I have several friends riding new 29" carbon this and suspension that but I gotta say - The vintage stuff really pulls my chain! Not to mention the history they embody. All this talk of the Ritchey's makes me wish I had never sold my 1987 Fat City Wicked. I bought it at a thrift store for $40 no less! Long live the old stuff!

    Aemmer, lets see some more of that fabulous Mountainbike by Tom Ritchey, eh?

    Ha,
    Like a lot of my projects, this one is not quite ready for a prime time photo shoot. Mainly just need to find era correct wheels (Old Phil Wood or Cook Bros laced to some Ukai's), a few other smaller items, an a good cleaning. Here is a teaser photo showing my Competition frame, A dirty dirt drop TimberComp, TimberWolf, and a Everest....

    I like fillet brazed Ritchey's.

    Just got an immaculate '88 Fuji Sundance (http://classicfuji.com/Sundance_1988_Page.htm), although mine has a black stem and riser bars. It's a really interesting bike - fillet brazed, but with a lugged unicrown fork! It's a 22" frame, so a bit tall for me (I'm 5'11") but I'm hoping to replace the 2.1" knobbies with some 1.5" semi-slicks and use it as a commuter/grocery getter. Will post photos soon - fun bike, looking forward to riding the hell out of it!

    My Diamond Back Ascent EX that I bought new in 1988. It was totally original (with exception of new rear derailleur and tires) until this past spring when I "upgraded" from six speed to seven and added new SRAM trigger shifters, fenders, new rack, new cantilevers on the front. Still has the old Exage U brake on the rear, hard to adjust but stops great when it is right. It is my regular run around town and dirt road bike.

    Here is my Dahon FMB-21 Mountain Gold: a 26", 21-speed, biopace crank, folding mountain bike with allen bolt, investment cast connections. It appears to be one of Dahon's earliest "large" folders; what little info there is to be found online (Wayback) is about models from 1998 onward, which were hi-tensile and featured quick releases on all the folding mechanisms.

    This FMB-21 Mountain Gold has a sticker indicating cro-moly tubing, weighs circa 33lbs. Stickers at the hinges read "Stainless Steel Investment Casted" (sic). Somewhere along the way, it lost its folding pedals and original seat -- which had a storage pouch for the allen wrench. The sticker for the biopace crank is still intact:




    Here's a thread I posted earlier about it.



    Here: some of Dahon's later web advertising for their MB's, suggesting the bike's are truly capable of great off-roading. I'm thinking the bike is more on than off-roadable!

    Dahon 26" bicycles are designed for cyclists who demand the performance of a traditional bicycle, but want folding convenience. Store these bikes indoors to prevent theft, put them in your car trunk to avoid the hassles of a roof rack, but don't give up a bit of performance. 25 seconds is all it takes to fold a Dahon 26". And when folded, Dahon 26" bikes are the most compact full size folding bicycles available. Even better, they require no disassembly of the front wheel, mudguards or handlestem - typical of other designs. It doesn't matter whether you normally pound trails or cruise around campus - we've got the perfect bike for you.
    Here: a Dahon PR photo, also from one of the company's Wayback pages:
