P-29er custom build with cool mods
I built up this P-29er at the beginning of the summer and it's been nothing short of amazing.
I've got quite a few rides in on 'er so far. Everything from rocky steep technical to paved roads and dirt roads and everything in between. The P-29er is pretty much everything I could've asked for from a hardtail.
Sooo, how to improve it? Thru Axle! Fortunately, I had converted my REEB singlespeed to thru axle earlier this year so I had some dropouts laying around. The Paragon sliders on my REEB are an exact fit to the sliding dropouts on the Ritchey.
Plus, doing this you can kill 2 birds with one stone and git rid of your brake adaptor as well. Post mount slider!
The ride? Doesn't change the comfort of the bike at all, but noticeable is stiffness under power and instant power delivery. Definitely worth it if you're looking for a little something extra out of your Ritchey. Do it!
Ritchey Dave, I know it's more expensive, but this is definitely an option that you guys should explore :)
