NIB/NOS Ritchey W.C.S Pro Seatpost: RARE Champagne/Platinum! 27.0mm x 330mm - Nitto - 1991-1997 Vintage -
This absurdly rare seatpost was the stock post on Ritchey fillet brazed bikes ranging from 1991/1992 up until at least 1997. Tom called this hard anodized color "platinum", but its more widely known as either champagne or gold. The post itself is a Nitto-made quad butted alloy post with a titanium clamp bolt and black clamp pieces. Form wise its very close to the Ritchey WCS. If you search for this post, you will find a lot of the silver version, and a lot of forum posts of people looking for the champagne one and writing "bump" every few months with no luck.
The WCS post was in the Ritchey components catalog from 1993 to 1997. The 1992 bikes catalog shows it as stock on the P-21 Team W.C.S. In later years, it was stock on all P-20 (Project 20) and P21 bikes, as well as the Swiss-Cross.
New old stock in retail box. Untouched, never installed, pristine.
