FS Ritchey Swiss Cross 59cm - Full Bike.

Posted on
  • Ritchey Swiss Cross Disc sized 59.

    It has been raced but has never been crashed (unless you count a 0 mph sideways tumble at Lovelo Crossmas into a lot of mud). It has done many miles and meticulously maintained.

    Built with 11 speed 105 with cross 46/36 upfront. The wheels are Shimano but I de-stickered those so I can't remember the model but they're solid and roll well. And the build kit is mostly Deda.

    I genuinely love the way this bike rides but I won't be racing anytime soon so I have to be unsentimental and let it go. Photos to follow.


  • Lovely bike. £800 sounds a bit steep, will wait to see photos, but any flex on that?

  • A few photos attached. Sorry about the delay but I was setting up an outdoor cinema for the kids. Any questions just ask. And it doesn't hurt to make an offer. I didn't think I was off on the pricing but perhaps I am.

  • That's lovely. Probably sacrilege to ask but does it have guard mounts anywhere?

  • Sadly not @russmeyer. It's bike packing and clip on mudguards if you're looking for adventures. It does have bosses for two water bottles, which is something I guess. I did use this for a 3 day ride along the Canal Du Midi. It's plenty comfortable for multi-day rides but it's not designed for that.

  • not designed for that

    No, I know. Well, glwts - I don't think you're off on pricing at all.

  • Thanks @russmeyer. I did consider getting various braze ons added to make it more versatile.

  • Price drop for a week then it goes on a well known auction site. Grab a bargain at £780.

  • Nope not yet. A couple of interested parties but no agreed sale yet.

  • Ok. I’d be interested in the frame/ frameset if you go down a splitting route.

  • pm

  • It's a possibility and I'd also consider a trade with something like:

    Brother Allday
    Cinelli Mash Work
    Cinelli Mash SSCX
    Trek Crockett

    Basically single speed but versatile.

  • Price drop to £750 just because I can't be bother to list it on eBay.

  • Have ogled this lovely bike every week since you listed it and just wanted to wish you all the best with the sale. Had I not recently found a NOS vintage steel CX, I would have been all over this. The Swiss cross frames are brilliant:)

  • Same here - wish I could afford it rn
