    Even knobby tires does wonders for the bike.

    Put that thread back in the VRC and not in the manufacturer forum. You'll get more info/attention over here.

    Here are a couple of updated pics on my P-23 Team. It took a while, but I finally found a more appropriate fork for the bike. Gone is the white Bridgestone fork, and a fillet brazed red Ritchey fork has taken it's place. I have to admit it looks better.

    I just picked up one of these, I was wondering are the team models made by Tom himself? Are both the team and regular p-series made in the USA or? Thanks!!!

    The fillet brazed "Team" frames were made by Tom. The TIGed frames were made in Japan with some finish work done in the US.

    That looks a lot like Mr Claus' a few posts down.

    Your updated one looks a ton better, Laffeaux. What a relief!

    Agreed nice one, you don't see them often with CBR cranks, but I like it. Also sweet you swapped for it, enjoy the ride and wish mine was a team, but mine's in super shape. Dig it

    I like that: well proportioned, nice patina and a "i am ready to work" attitude. Extra points for the standard frame pump. Every bike needs a frame pump. Black rims fit nicely.

    Rode very nice, stiff! It has a 48t chain ring on it too but I got used to it. I added the handle bar, pump, and tires the rest was as I got it. Took a few days to get the seat post out though... already dirty as it should be.

    I donīt care for the 48 but i need the 36. Those 32 mid rings donīt cut it.

    Does anyone know what size the p-22 decal on the top tube should be? I have 1995 p-22 (I think).

    I am trying to get a replacement via Ritchey P-21/22/23 Top Tube Decals - Set of 2 (sku 395p) - VeloCals

    Here's a tiny one a friend of mine has decided to sell. He has the brakes kicking around somewhere. I'm not sure which "P" it is though. Anybody?

    From Laffeaux's excellent Ritchey fansite:

    https://ritchey.vintagebicycledatabase.com/models.php

    "After several years of identifiable serial numbers, Ritchey reverted back to less decipherable serial numbers. Throughout much of the early 1990s the "P-series" frames had numbers that don't seem to mean anything. An excpetion were the US-made fillet brazed frames: the Everest and the P-series Team frames, which often follow the 1980s scheme..."

    After riding this bike for a spell it blows the doors off all my other vintage steeds, I can now see what the hype was all about. What a bike!

    I wanted to share my bike, a future classic. Gets lots of compliments on the trail though often mistaken for vintage

    Very nice!!

    I have a P-650b as well, and it's the best riding frame I've owned. I really enjoy it. And like you, lots of other riders stop to tell me about their old Ritcheys and ask if my bike is old or new.

    I have a P-29 that I enjoy, kinda wish it was a 650b instead, but I did get a great deal on it with all SRAM XX1, maybe one of these days I'll sell it and use the proceeds towards a used 650b, or a swap? Oh and Laffeaux's 650b is quite unique and special as I believe it is all fillet brazed by TR himself, no? Did you ever posts pics of yours? If not I'm sure we'd all like to take a gander. Cheers and Happy New Years.

    I bought myself a lil ebay present, my first single speed, she's a beauty IMO, made by a certain John Slawta..hint. I'll post it somewhere here when it's ready.

    Very cool on the Land Shark!

    I think I've posted pics in the past of my P-650b, and yes it's one of the few that was fillet brazed by Tom. Here are a couple of crappy pics as it sits right now. I just stole the pedals off it for my fatbike, as a fatbike is a lot more useful on our trail right now.

    Ahhh, drool, even with the inhospitable weather conditions. Hopefully I'll get to see it (and the others) in person one of these on a trip up north., but not till the deep freeze is over. Thanks for the pics and yes the Dirt Shark is a real beauty, it'll be up soon. Cheers

    Possibly. Tom made a P-650 for NAHBS. I'm not sure if my bike is that frame, or if mine was a different frame. It wasn't clear when I bought it. I've not found a really good picture of the NAHBS bike to compare.

    Just out of curiosity why do you wish it where a 650b instead of a 29er? Currently I'm still running 26er's and just wondering if long time 26er's prefer 650b to 29 if they switch.

    JPL, exactly as you just pointed out. I ride my various 26" more than the 29'" and it just feels somehow unwieldy at times in say tight singletrack or if I'm moving the bike around a lot to pick lines. The frame size is correct, but it just feels "tall", maybe not the right term. I suppose I would get used to it if I rode it more, but I think the transition from 26" to 650b would be easier. It was a great deal and it is a nice bike with top-notch components (XXI, King hubs, Niner carbon fork), anyone want to swap? OK, sorry to divert this thread! Cheers. Oh and Lafeaux I can't imagine there are more than 1-3 of those brazed 650b's, no?

    Hey all just got my hands on an 18" p23! It's got some fixing up to do but one thing I really would love to get is a red logic fork for it as there was some old crappy suspension fork before. Will try to put some pics soon but any leads on getting a fork would be much appreciated!
