Hi Cromolyman,

Set up an account at one of the free photo hosting services- I use Photobucket. You can host your pix there and then you can post full size pix on forums and such.

And it's free.

If you don't want to go through that- I'm also going to send you a PM with my email and you can send me a few pictures and I can host them for you for a while.

I'm really interested to see your bike!

There's been a 60cm Ritchey Logic Road frame sitting on ebay for almost a week now. If I had the room & budget, I'd be having night sweats:

So a lil bump rather than starting a new thread.

1. Did any of the early road bikes ever have 'T. Ritchey' down tube decals? (Edit: Yes.)
1b. Does anyone know when he stopped using 'T. Ritchey' decals?

2. Did have have internally expanding Campy Record seat posts?

Another bump.

I just built this up after a long hunt.
Very rare to find one here in Australia.
Definitely the sweetest riding bike I've ever owned.

Welcome. Yes, finding vintage Ritchey bikes is rarely easy, but it must be serious challenge in Australia!

Looks good.

Nice first post, too.

It sounds silly, but the hard part for me is that you can't really search for Ritchey on CL or eBay unless you want to sift through the thousands of 90s Ritcheys and components.

When Serrotta and True Temper screwed up the 7-11 team bikes (they literally were breaking and to this day there is finger pointing regarding whose fault it was) many of the team bikes were sourced by the cyclists themselves. Andy Hampsten's Land Shark is iconic because when Slawta built it he probably never imagined his bike would with the Giro d'Italia. There was at least one Ritchey bike being ridden by a cyclist on the 7-11 team. I think they all had to buy the "other" bicycles that weren't Serottas out of pocket. Hampsten, like the others received permission to source his own bike not trusting the Serotta's after one broke under him in one of the Belgian Ardennes classics. He said he got a great deal on it. It was displayed in Boulder for years at a LBS. I think Slawta would have paid Andy to ride his bike if he knew the history that bike was going to make. Hampsten is still the only American to ever win the Giro, although other US bicycles have won the Giro (Cannondale twice).

If a Ritchey was good enough for a gran tour its good enough for any of us.

Welcome to the Ritchey club in Australia, I don't think there are many of us with the privilege of owning one of these beautiful bikes here in Australia, I have a 94 road logic, such a magical ride

There was a Ritchey tent at last year’s Hilly Hundred in Indiana, selling Ritchey road frames, and they were nice.

Yessir, he's far from done, he was at NAHBS in Sac. in 17 and he was commanding the attention of several iconic builders with a lively discussion about current events and how he planned to be right in the middle of it.

I chase down every mention of one that I see, usually only to find that I could have a custom made for the $$$$$$ involved, just not from him.

I don't think he had a booth at NAHBS in 2017 but he had a frame slung over his shoulder and was holding court with several other builders and they were paying attention as you would expect.

I refurbished a Ritchey road for a friend a while back so he could sell it -and get it out of his garage as it was left behind by a relative.


as it came to me in Triathlon mode

refurbed and restored to road bike mode

Wow, that logic is in nice shape. And it doesn't help that it's red. I'd ride it.
