My first 29er, Ritchey P-29er build.
Having ridden 26" hardtails since I started riding in 1990 and absolutely loving (great) steel frames, I decided it was time to try a 29er to see what all the fuss is about.
Loving steel and having seen so much about the new Ritchey frames, I almost bought a frame a year ago, then as luck would have it one showed up locally on ebay recently in my supposed size, small or 15"
Managed to win the frame and collect a bargain at the same time :) Then it was time to order a fork (Sid XX) and wheels (Stans Race Gold 29er) :D
Just waiting on the seatpost (Bontrager carbon x 400mm) and she will be ready for action.
I am a little unsure as to how the bike will ride and whether the frame size will feel "right" being a small, I am 170cm with an 81cm inseam.
Here are some pics of the build so far :) Oh and the 29er should look nice next to my P-23 :) Hopefully be out riding the new bike in a week or so :thumbsup:
