Free to good home. Local pick up.

I've had this bike for about 20 months. In all that time I've put on a whopping 423 miles. Strangely enough, I just don't like the way it rides. Not that there is anything wrong with it. It probably rides exactly the way Tom Ritchey intended...Like a drop bar converted vintage Ritchey Ascent. Just not my cuppa tea and I have plenty of other bikes I just like better.

A bunch of pictures of below. The frame, fork, headset, wheels & travel case only. I am keeping the crankset, brakes, handlebars, shifters/derailleurs, saddle, seatpost, etc...

The hand-off is complete. Ritchey now has a wonderful and nice new owner...And a second life as a globe-trotter!

Hopefully, to be seen again. On BikeForums.
I like phrases such as: 'paying it forward', 'right tool makes tough jobs easier', 'purpose built is best purpose used', 'second useful life', and 'to be seen again'.



T.Richey - 'classic' on the American scene.

I'll be sure to post an update once it's built up, Stu. Thanks again to Aaron and you for your generosity.

I just finished assembly of the Ritchey mostly made up of hand-me-down parts.
It's now sporting 650b wheels instead of 700c thinking it will pack easier this way.
Just waiting for a dry day to try it out.
Thanks again for your generosity @base2, Wildwood and nlerner !
