Just got a killer deal on this beauty today:

Now I don't know if I should swap frames (but I would need a suspension adjusted rigid fork - might be tough to find) and resell the P-22 frame, keep the P-22 bike and resell the P-20 frame or build around the P-20 frame and resell my P-22 bike (I can really only afford one bike right now).

Keep the one that's in the better condition.
Assuming you're going to be running a rigid fork anyway, the P22 is already there! I wouldn't have though here's much in it weight or performance wise.
How much does that frame weigh?

If you must sell one, then as said before keep the one in the best nic!
Although they both look good to me.

Personaly speaking, it would be th P20 for me. :D

Interesting article in the latest issue of MBA...

"How to know when it's time for a new bike: 50 early warning signs"

One of the signs: "Tom Ritchey made your bike."

LOL!

I'm after one of those in 18" if you want to pass on the killer deal :wink:

Is that the one that didn't sell on ebay?

Chris.

The one on Ebay did sell, I bought it privately. I really need the money, so the market will decide how much it's worth. ;)
