Vintage MTB Restoration Series: Episode 01 – Unboxing

For the latest Beautiful Builds video, John introduces his newest project: a 1984 Ritchey Annapurna he got from Bicycle Collective in St. George, Utah. Over a few episodes, he’ll explain what it takes to make these old “barn find” bikes road-worthy again.

From replacing split cable housing and cables to protecting the paint, repacking bearings, and rust-proofing, this episodic Beautiful Builds showcases the work that goes into vintage MTB restoration.
