Ritchey Breakaway road bike

Fun travel bike. Put it together summer of 2012 and have already taken it from Seattle to San Francisco once. Plan to take it to Italy next summer. Just put cheap wheels on it cause the wheels get beat to crap when traveling. Also added the blue Bonty bar tape after a brief experiment with Gevenalle shifters (didn't like them).
