    Sorry edit. The wheel is closer to the non drive side. Short answer is no. I'm in NZ and the distributors are Worrels so will try them. Problem is that I've had the frame for a year and have just lived with it.

    Make a 27.5 & 29er w/fixed dropouts along with a tapered head tube and I'd be sold. One for the sweetie and one for me...

    Hello! After a year and a half of reading the forums on the P29er and looking at pics of complete builds, i finally took the plunge! Cannot wait to take her on her maiden voyage! Thanks to all for bringing folks like myself up to speed on this awesome ride!New Ritchey 29er-img_5766.jpg

    That is awesome! You won't regret your decision at all. Are those Ritchey's carbon rims? If so, interested what you think of them. I also run the "Shield" tires, and have been pleased with their performance/quality.

    I have had my P-29er almost 2 years, and no problems at all, In fact, I think $ for $ it's the best value out there, just my opinion. I also started mine out geared, but about 9 months ago changed to ss, and must say I am really enjoying that set up, in fact, can't see ever going back to gears.......something to keep in mind. Anyways, I'm sure you will enjoy they hell out of it, for many years!

    Thanks! The rims are the alloy version.... not really sold on carbon wheels yet. Funny, this bike was going to be a ss build but at the last second, I had my lbs change it to geared. 90% of the trails around here, a ss would suffice... but the other 10%... well.... been there, done that with a ss...... gears are NICE! In addition.... changing from gear to ss is easier and cheaper than the other way around! Happy you like the Shield tires... I was going to get the ZMAX but the Shield reminded me of the Conti Race Kings I so loved!

    So my bike is 2.5 years old, I felt it needed a fresh coat and make over.

    Thank you Dave, I am glad you like it.
    The inspiration was from the Martini race cars.
    I have installed the WCS fork and I am running the Surly Knard in there.

    mcoplea, I also live in Az., and have had the pleasure of owning the P-29er for over 3 years now, also set up SS. Your going to love it! Should give you many years of trouble free, beautiful miles. Enjoy the best deal in steel, IMO. Hell, maybe the best deal period!

    Thanks! I am loving the ride so far. Fast, smooth, steady and yet still nimble. Tom definitely knows what he is doing when he designs a bike!
