    And I thought you all was going to point out it was a 29er (not that I know what the difference is as it says you could run 700c as well

    My cross wheels carry a 28 as the bottom gear, that's with a single chainring @36. For the Three Peaks next year I am going to fit the biggest pussy plate my mech will handle, but stick with the single up front. Range 11 - 32??

    Tip of the saddle 20 mm behind bottom bracket. All my bikes have this position, it's where I get the best power delivery.

    Thanks for the compliment.

    I love dem Focus rigs. Hawt.

    The Niner is a gravel bike apparently. Not supposed to be a CX race bike, hence the curious chainset / rear mech arrangement.

    @VamP I run 39/12-28. Which I'm training into ;)

    With a short cage mech I suspect you could get away with 12-34. The short cage SRAM on my bike will take 11-36 if that's your bag. Your's looks like a long cage som bung on anything that you like.

    Me too, I was going to post the link too after getting their email today. Flandrian and cyclocross is just right. Ridley offered a similar paint job a couple of years ago.

    Have just taken delivery of this beauty, which seems worth resurrecting the thread for...

    Unfortunately, it's not mine, just borrowed for a photoshoot, but I'm hoping to do at least a couple of races on it. The colour is incredible - they call it 'acid pink'. In the publicity shots on the Specialized website, it looks a bit dark, but in real life it's really punchy. Nicely specced too, with SRAM Rival 1x and Roval SLX 24 wheels.

    Earlier in this thread, I wrote that I once wanted a P21, still do!!:notworthy::wub::notworthy:

    With Ritcheys own (Logic) stem, bars, seat-pin, wheels, chain-set, tyres, cantilevers, etc......
