    Yup. As someone earlier in this thread pointed out, it appears that Ritchey parts will be road and 'cross, Syncros for off road.
    So much for a 29" Z-Max...

    Just want to point out that gary Fisher is not a bike builder so not sure what he would do if he didnt "sell out"
    I dont see what is the problem here TR brought some handbuilt bikes to the hand built show and if enough people want to buy them he will do a production run somewhere where the labor is cheap enough so that 99% of the people on this site wont complain about how much they cost.
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you'll crash.

    My desire for one of these has not abated.

    Hmm... A P-29er with Plexus style seatstays? Now that would be rad!

    I need a P-29er to go with my P-21. Haven't jumped on the 29 wagon yet, but can't wait until the P-29er is available whether it is Tig'd or Filet Brazed.

    I just spun over to the Ritchey site to see if they had any more information on their 29" er frame or tires. Nothing. While this bike made it's debut at the February 2011 NAHBS show in Austin and reappeared at the Sea Otter in April 2011 how hard is it to update your website? Lame. Even their news and blog posts are moths out of date. Doubly lame. Granted, I still hold out for a 29" version of the Z -Max Classic in a 2.35 but at the same token I'm not going to hold my breath.

    All I can say is wow. I have always been a Ritchey fan and the new Red/White/Blue 29ers look incredible to say the least.

    I don't think this is made in Ritchey factory. They may use a frame builder. Did it say TW or China?

    At that price point it's probably done off shore. I think TR did do the show bikes, however.

    The production frames are made in Taiwan. The frames that we've had at NAHBS and Sea Otter were handmade by Tom Ritchey.

    They're scheduled to be available in November. Preorder if you're interested as our initial supply is limited.

    Our website is now updated with the P-29er as well.

    Woohoo! Finally, a Ritchey 29'er!! I'm still not a huge fan of the bent downtubes but I understand why they do it. It's just not my favorite part of the design. However.... they are sweet. Hopefully, he'll steer clear of sliders at some point and come up with something else for chain tension for us singlespeeders out in the world.

    He he, well kind of. If I use his link, the website automatically detects that I am from outside of the US and is not displaying the „frames“ section, only if I choose US manually it does the trick...
    Now I can see them, thanks!

    There was a small delay. They'll be here mid December. It'll be worth the wait.

    Yes, we'll be trying out some different looks in the future, however there's nothing for sure yet.
