here is my ritchey aspen 86'. I bought this bike in stock condition because it was made the year I graduated from high school. And it's a classic cool mountain bike. It's a little small for me so I decided to use it as a donor for my xtracycle commuter.

Here's the build:
nitto north roads bar
brooks saddle
oury grips
schwalbe tires (love these)
planet bike fenders
bmx platform pedals

I really enjoy this long bike. The ride is super smooth and fast yet upright and comfortable. My seven year old loves riding on the back and hauling groceries and supplies is a snap too.
