2000 Ritchey Plexus

This is one of my personal bike and was really the first "boutique" bike that I ever owned.  The curved seat stays are supposed to add a little suppleness to the rear end but I can't ay that I noticed much of a difference.  It has been through several different build kits since I have owned it, so if you see the bike, it will likely be different than the parts list below.  I use it  to test out components to see how they work.
