    It's a Land Shark. It's a one off custom so it makes comparing it to other frames to get a date nearly impossible. And yes, chainstay brakes so I think my date range is close. XT 730 came out in...
  2. Can anyone put a date on this tubing decal?

    I'm trying to put a date to a frame I recently purchased. I was told '85-'86 by the seller, but I think it's more likely '87-'88. It's a mountain bike so a period build is completely different for...

    You won't like my answer, but that's not a Crazy Pete - seatstay cluster is wrong and that isn't a Ritchey serial number. I hope you didn't pay too much.

    The component mix says '84 to me. It's rare to see Shimano Deerhead on an '83 mass produced bike. I'd guess $200-250 because of the parts mix - that seatpost is not a cheap item.

    That is one of the best threadless conversions I've seen.

    I just read the bike's story on mtbr. I initially questioned the year with that fork. Cool story and a unique Ritchey. Love those tires - be careful on the trails with old tires, even NOS. :)

    The Montare came out in 1984, but doesn't match the catalog at all, so I'm guessing built in '84 for '85. The components were also all date coded '84. Catalog link -...

    Not the prettiest solution, but you can use what's already on the bike. This set up was suggested to us and my wife loved it. It allowed her to sit up in a position where she could look around.
