Ritchey / Timber Comp / 1988


This Ritchey is 100% catalogue spec right down to the original foam grips. This is an extremely clean example - having not one single scratch or even a rub. The Timber Comp is a 'B' frame, falling in the competition/sport fillet-brazed category of Ritchey frames. The 1988 model featured some new designs in contrast to previous Timber Comps, such as a 69.5-degree head angle and shorter 17.25 chain stays. All the design choices were implemented to target a faster, stronger, and more responsive ride. This is an incredible and capable machine in all aspects of riding, on all kinds of terrain. At the time, it was reviewed by Mountain Bike Action as “an ultimate go anywhere, do-anything machine.”
