    Haha! True, true.

    These two knuckleheads had modern 29'ers and all I had was my lowly Phoenix to try and keep up!

    Can a Ritchey be a Ritchey without that classic seat cluster? Its cool he's making MTBs again though.

    Am I becoming a forum jerk...
    I had to add my two cents to the thread over there....
    Sorry, I tried to hit the delete button but hit submit instead......
    .
    Beautiful bike...

    Being tall and still not embracing the 29ers....Thats how I know I resist change.....You have seen enough of my projects to know I need em over 20" ctc in order to ride...Not the prettiest size in a 26" forrmat but still prettier than 29"... and except for Nates new passion for fillet brazed Ritcheys, not as much competition as the smaller sizes.

    I'll just bite my nails! I'd love to see something new with the Ritchey cluster. Has anyone heard if its just going to be 29ers or 26ers too? I've given the big wheels a shot and I don't think they're for me but a new fb'ed Ritchey just might convince me.

    Integrated HS is U-G-L-Y
    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    That bike is gorgeous! 29'ers are nice out here where there are rocks, If you like hardtails. I still like 26 full sussers...
    Listen, Tom Ritchey is making frames AGAIN!!! I get the feeling some of you luddites would only be happy if he only made retro frames for the 100 people who would by one...

    ....consider yourself BURNED!!!

    I agree. Seeing as Ritchey was the last hold out to go to 1&1/8" this surprised me.

    The frames will be tigged and Taiwanese in origin. $999 projected msrp. I'm bummed. I was excited about a Ritchey fillet 29er. Sadly it's exactly what I thought it was, a hand built bike to get into the hand built show to pitch a tigged, Asian origin production bike.

    One of the comments in the thread:

    "I didn't know Ritchey even made frames... "

    Jeez I feel old.

    Well that's consistent with the Ritchey frames of old.
    More bikes than you can point a broken spoke at...

    Yup, I already own one of those. It'll probably ride well, I was just hoping it was going to be something it clearly isn't.

    Yeah, that's true. I guess they could do P27.5 for a B bike?

    And according to FB, Ritchey already tried 650b back in the 70's and only moved away from that size due to sudden lack of availablity of tires.
