The return of the legendary Ritchey Mountain Bike. Tom Ritchey applied decades of racing, designing and building steel mountain bikes into the p-29er.

Like any Ritchey, this bike is born to go fast without sacrificing comfort or durability. Heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey logic II tubing in our own unique butting profiles results in a frame that balances rough trail compliance with sprint-winning stiffness.

The 29er-specific geometry was defined by the best way we know: countless hours of saddle time under Tom Ritchey, world Cup legend Thomas frischknect and other racers. The result: nimble handling that captures the benefits of the big wheels, stable but not sluggish, equally at home on all-day epics or tight, technical singletrack race courses.

This is the second version of a 650b mountain bike from Ritchey – Tom started to design his first in 1977. Even back then, Tom had a feeling that there was an advantage to the "middle" wheel size, but it took the rest of the cycling world three decades to figure it out: a 650b (or 27.5") wheel provides the bump-eating smoothness of a 29er, with the light, responsive feel of 26" wheels. Finally, the era of the 650b wheel is here.

The P-650b is a close relative to the P-29er. Up front there's the proprietary forged-and-machined, gram-shaving integrated head tube featured on all new Ritchey frames. Forged socket dropouts nd new chainstay-mounted rear disc brake mount save a few more grams.

And like every frame we make, geometry and tubing is carefully fine-tuned by Tom, to bring the legendary balanced, nimble Ritchey feel to 27.5" wheels.
