Ritchey Road Logic repaint

updated with build photos

I've had this frame for 8 years and just love it. Last year I had an unfortunate incident where an arm warmer tucked under my saddle fell out, got wrapped up in the chain and rear derailleur, and the derailleur hanger got mangled. I had it bent back and rode it like that for a while but it still had some problems ghost shifting when I mashed on the pedals, so had a friend replace the dropout with a replacement Ritchey.

That came out great and then I had it powdercoated in Pacific Silver. Just picked it up from the painter on Saturday and will soon be built back up and back on the road, hopefully for many more years to come. Mostly silver components and gumwall tires, I think she'll look good if not better than new.

I'm guessing Broadway in Brooklyn.

thanks guys. The pics were taken at my favorite bike photo spot, which happens to be 2 blocks from my apartment, on Atlantic Ave at Kingston Ave. That's the LIRR train above.

Is that engraving on the uni-crown? My '95 came threaded.

It's actually an internally lugged crown, but they were engraved. Nice forks- I had a soft spot for the CX version.

yea it's a pretty nice looking fork for a "unicrown" style. I actually had a carbon Alpha Q on this bike for a while before the repaint and although it saved me about a lb of weight, I prefer the ride with the steel Ritchey fork so switched back to that when I had it repainted.
I'm not sure what year mine is but it came threadless.

Off to FBF!

What a great looking bike! I see you ride the saddle way forward. It reminds me of Aki, especially on the last lap: nose first. And you can get PRs in a Logic? I think I need another bike.

yep, the PR's just fit. I don't think it'll go any larger than 29c between the chainstays though. Only annoyance is that even when I quick release the calipers I have to deflate to remove the wheels, but I'll deal with that for the primo ride of the PR's.

now I wish I kept mine! I had a logic with a threaded fork and I was always looking to drop weight. after the paint was trashed, I let it go. I did like that I would fit large tires in there!

great build, adam. i'm trying to figure out how you decide whether or not to ride this or the RJ on any given day.

i guess it's not a bad conundrum to have.

hope to see you out there!

Great looking repaint!

Just picked up a road logic last month, can not wait to build it up.
