Just wanted to throw in a roll call for Ritchey Road and Cross bike riders. Mine is a 1997ish Swiss Cross that is tig and brazed (front end tig'd, rear brazed). It uses Tange Prestige in the frame, and while I have the original threaded 1" fork, I'm currently running a Surly threadless fork on it. I use it mainly for the road, but like having the option of running larger tires for commuting or the occasional fire road excursions.

Here is the listing on the classic Ritchey page

Anyone else rolling on classic or even modern Ritchey bikes?

:thumbsup:

Just getting back on the road

I have a Ritchey Road Logic from mid 90's.

I stopped riding 10 years ago for medical reasons but held onto the bike. Yesterday I decided I might trade it for a more gentle ride and went as far as taking it to a dealer to negotiate for a hybrid. I wasn't aware of what the Ritchey might be worth, and still had some doubts about "the trade in value", so at the last minute I put it back on top the car and left. I will tell you that it raised a few eyebrows at the bike shop and several folks there could not beleive that I would consider selling or trading it. The owner suggested "he had thousand of bikes like this" which is when I put it back on the car.

I logged many miles on the Ritchey and cannot bring myself to let it go. Nothing rides like steel and nothing rides like Ritchey.

I plan on rehabing it today and taking it back out to see how the bike and I get along after all these years. I am 62 and not in the shape I was back then, but look forward to reacqauinting with my old friend.
