Hoping to catch sight of one of these beauties and the P-650b at The London Bike Show this weekend. I don't think that Ritchey have a stand, but maybe someone will have one on show.

Regards

I put my naked frame on the digital kitchen scales and it was 2.1kg.
Not the most accurate way to measure it. My KHS team comes in at 11.17kg
so I expect the P-650b to be very close once built, as most of the parts are being transferred.

Yeah, my CX bike is over 1900 gr.

It seems Tom has changed since the times of the P23-22-21-20. Sturdier heavier frames, now. I'm quite happy because I give it a good dose of abuse for a cx bike, but I doubt many of these bikes will make it to the starting line of a race...

Not sure on its weight but its not featherlight anyway. I've got a set of Ritchey carbon bars on another bike which i have still to swap over as well as the headset when it arrives.
