You are bidding on a 1981 Ritchey MountainBike with its original components all in excellent condition. This bike is of museum quality, and is very collectable, not to mention being a great ride. The bike has been ridden some, and has some very minor chips and scratches in the paint/decals, and some chain slap marks on chainstay, but no dings or rust. Please see pictures. Overall, its a jaw dropper.
As you probably know if you're reading this, this bike is from the most collectable period of Mr. Ritchey's frame building career, and is a wonderful example from the early days of mountain biking.

Specs are as follows:

Model Year: 1981

Serial Number: 1R199

Frame Size: 21 inches center to top, 20 inches center to center

Interesting idea to document the sale. Note that it's not an Ascent, though, as those came out in 1985.
...as well as every other frame, fork, stem detail. :)

Did the auction say it was an Ascent?

Wow. I built those wheels. Who woulda ever thunk I would see them again.
Comments like the one above are one of the things that make the VRC thread so damned unique.
Thanks Repack!

Notice the seat tube sticker? Mikes Bikes in San Rafael. I used to hang out that shop when I was a little grommet, back when Mick owned it, way before it was a chain. I bet I saw that bike when it was new.
