Here is my newly acquired N+7 Ritchey! I got the frame at a bargain that’s almost unused and as new. I really didn’t need another bike but just wanted something like this. I had been eyeing up a Genesis Volare 931 but they geo wasn’t quite right and wanted a flatter TT, then I found this. It had to be different to the rest of my bikes so I built it up with Campagnolo. To keep costs down the idea was to gather 2nd hand bits and build it over time but 11 campy compatibility was just confusing so I bought new potenza which was easier and maybe no more expensive in the end. And I’m impatient.
Wheels are Dt Swiss OXIC with Ultegra cassette which I can use between this and my BMC teammachine on which they belong.
Finishing kit is temporary (I think) because its what I had lying about and it’s mismatched, but it’s blacked out so looks ok.
One ride after work so far so I was tired, and hoping it rode and nice as people say, and it does! Can’t fault it so far.

Frame-Ritchey road Logic 51cm, saddle height 67cm
Wheels-Dt Swiss PR1400 Oxic w/maxxis pardone (for now)
Groupset-Campagnolo Potenza, Ultegra cassette KMC chain
Saddle- Spesh power. Yeah, I hate the look too but they’re too comfy!
Weight TBC. Part of me doesn’t wanna know Image

Yes-I have seen yours before, in fact it stuck in my mind!! And I searched for it again on WW for inspiration before pulling the trigger on mine! How are you finding it?
I see you have neoclassic bars. If only they made them in 38cm I’d get another pair (40cm were too wide for me)

Sorry I haven’t check in for a while. Yes I wish the neoclassic bar would come ln 38 cm. This bike deserve classic bar and I could only think of the Deda Newton Shallow and the neoclassic. My neoclassic is the carbon version which is lighter than the Deda so I choose this bar.

Have been riding the ritchey a lot more and I love it. At 15.4 lbs it feels as quick as my Cinelli Strato.

Really nice! I think Padrones are pretty good tires. Definitely were better than fusions, in every aspect

I have Vittoria Corsa G+ tubular on mine. It rides really nice. It rides softer than the Continental Competition or the Granprix 4000S tubulars. In term of puncture, I rode over 500 miles so far and it still going strong. The only thing I do not like in the vittoria tire is the tube doesn't hold air as well as continental tires. I have to pump air every 3-4 days if I don't ride the bike. Unlike the continental it will hold good pressure for weeks. I am from the States and I am not familiar with the tires you mentioned.

I’ve been really enjoying this bike, I love how it handles and it’s the bike I most look forward to riding-the extra weight is never really noticed and I have no issues riding a chaingang on it.
The steel frame is weirdly quiet on rough roads (every road then!) and even though I haven’t had it long I know it’ll be one of those frames I never sell on.
