    Ritchey P-650b

    In the MBTR home page under Eurobike Blog No. 1, the fourth picture down shows a bunch of Ritcheys that the caption dismissively refers to as "throw back bikes". If you look closely the middle bikes have P-650b on the top tubes. Hardley throw back. Anyone with info on these?

    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Try the Pipedream Sirius. Half the price. I run 120mm travel on mine. Works incredible.

    I looked at the Pipedream site and what a great value this is! Do you have a 650 specific fork on yours and did you experiment to find that the 120 worked best? Did you get a weight on the frame?
    Thx

    I have the p650b in large 19" size with a custom build she's a sweet 10.5kg. I have a thread here with pics etc, feel free to ask any questions. Best steel frame I have ridden.
    Mine runs a 2012 fox 32 RLC 26" fork, the local importer here for fox is only bringing in the tapered steers for 650b forks.

    Yes, I used a 650b specific fork. The Rockshox Revelation Rct3.
    If I recall the frame was about 4.5 lbs. For the medium.

    Ritchey 650B with Lefty

    I have not had a chance to ride it yet. Fork options were very slim so I went with a Lefty.

    What's the weight mine came in at 10.5kg with the fox 32 RLC 26" fork?
    That lefty looks pretty sweet in there.
