    Ritchey Dave,

    I live in Arizona, my friend and I pre-ordered P-29er's in November, any idea when we can expect those to arrive?

    This will be my fourth Ritchey, and my first 29er, so I am really looking forward to it's arrival. Currently still "rockin" my late 90's Plexus, which is a great bike, but she's ready to retire from my every day bike. A group of guy's I recently started with were amused when I first showed up on it, now they are pretty amazed at how well my "old road bike" performs

    Any info would be great !

    Those older Ritchey frames can definitely hang with best of them today. The Plexus is one of my favorite Ritchey frames ever.

    Where did you preorder your P-29er from?

    We had a real short shipment of the 19s unfortunately. They have one on order for you, but it'll be on our next shipment which should be arriving any minute.

    No problem, new bike anticipation can be painful. Rest assured it's almost over, and it'll be worth the wait.

    Frame arrived this afternoon,I haven't seen it yet,but I wanted to thank you for your time, and customer service on this matter. I appreciate all that you and any others have done to make it happen.

    Due to a recent work obligation, I won't be able to complete my build for 5-6 weeks, but when do, I will be sure to post info on the build, and ride. Can't wait, and again, thanks!

    Does anyone know the specs on the bottom bracket shell? Is it english threaded? 68mm?

    I have a NOS Logic compact crankset and NOS Ritchey Ti 120mm bottom bracket in my parts bin. It would be cool to go a little retro in my build if I can.
    Wanted: Ritchey P-20,21,22,23 in Team colors, 18-inch, '92-99, Ritchey Logic fork (threadless); NEW Rock Shox Judy Decal Sets

    My ride:




    still waiting for red V5 pedals, silver instead if white cables, titanium retro style stem, Ritchey saddle.
    Custom stem will be painted red to match the frame and the fork will be painted white (top) and blue (bottom) according to the Ritchey P-series racers from the nineties.

    Thanks for the insight I am located in Ohio and having a hard time finding one in stock called a couple lbs and they are checking into ordering one if not I reached a place down in Texas that would be able to hook me up.

    I just finished my build about a week ago, and I'm loving it! Like you, this is my 1st 29er, and I am very impressed with the Ritchey frame, and the bigger wheels! This is my 4th Ritchey, but I would say my best ever!

    Mine is a large, and complete build, without pedals was 22.5lbs. I would send pictures
    if I could figure out how. Any ways, great bike, and I believe I know where to get a med
    in Arizona. Good luck.

    Nice bad jack need to see some eye candy! Talked to a dealer in western P.A. and he is going to be able order me one. It probably will not be here to July but that gives me time to think about and purchase some of the components. Did you go geared or SS?

    2x10 sram. First time on 2x10,was somewhat concerned about the low gearing for climbing, but works great. First ride did 5000' of climbing, had pleanty of gearing.

    39x22. I found that when I was in 1st, 2nd, etc on my 3x9, I am able to do the same on the 2x10. I have to admit though, I do miss the big ring of the 3x9, you don't. seem to be able to get up to speed as quick on 2x10, but have only used for a week, so may have to get better planing ahead? Time will tell, but no regrets. yet......

    HI Ritchey Dave,
    The Ritchey P29 mentions the steel as "Ritchey Logic II steel"...do you know anything more about this steel and how it compares to Reynolds 853?

    Thanks for your insight!
