    Any Idea what my Ritchey's worth?

    I have an early 90's Ritchey Ascent Comp with XT components that I have had and not been riding. I know there are people that like the stuff, and I had a great time riding back in the day, but now I am strictly a road bike guy. Here are some pics, I will probably put it in the sell forum and on craigslist. Any guesses would be appreciated. I mostly used it for single track up in Kettle Moraine, WI. I bought it off a friend who upgraded to a super Comp.

    Don't pay attention to him.. he has a crackpipe mounted to his handlebars.

    I'd say $200-$300 for the Ritchey.. maybe more.

    Try posting this in the Classic and Vintage section for better responses. They are up on older bikes there.

    I would do a search on Ebay for old Ritchey's to see what people are paying for them.
    Livestrong. The personal fundmaker of Lance Armstrong. The company who are in business to not donate to cancer research, but only to inform people that cancer is bad.

    Armstrong. The man without integrity, no care for the sport, and no problem with testing positive for EPO and making donations to cover it up.

    This is correct. I was talking in crack-head lingo

    This one's not as desirable as the 1980s fillet brazed models.

    Value depends on condition and how original the build is.

    If in good or better condition with all original parts, $500-700. If not, half that or a little better.

    Best place to advertise it is probably the MTBR classifieds board.

    Thanks guys, its not fillet brazed but is all original sans tires, and I do still have those. Front STI shifter needs some attention but otherwise is in reall good condition. I have a guy in WI that is interested in it and I just don't want to give it away, but I don't seem to ride anything other than my road bike anymore! It sure was a fast, agile little bike for single track!

    Any ideas on best way to ship?
