1982 Ritchey MountainBikes Catalogue

As a follow-up to the previous post, "Tom Ritchey: In His Own Words," here is Tom's 1982 catalogue. As you can see from the Fairfax address (Tom has always lived on the SF peninsula, not in Marin County), these were Tom's bikes, as sold by the Charlie Kelly / Gary Fisher partnership. Enjoy! (Remember, click any of the images/pages to see it bigger.) Special thanks to Tom Ritchey for providing the scans!

Very cool! I particularly like those classic shots of Monte Ward, with Joe Breeze and solo. It was a wonderful era. Thanks for posting.

My old '81 Ritchey Everest went to this museum:

Great bike, in its time. Placed me well at Whiskeytown and at a couple of Rockhoppers. We also visited Death Valley a number of times.
