While it was easy to get completely focused on custom frames from some of the greatest, friendliest, and most humble artists around, there was some really cool production stuff.
What caught my eye most of all was the Ritchey booth.
The return of the classic Ritchey hardtail, only this time in a 29". Granted, it was nothing earth shattering- a steel hardtail with fairly "normal" geometry and sliding Paragon-style dropouts, but... it's a Ritchey!
Oh, and it was shod with Syncros rims and tires. They didn't have a lot of intel on them, but looked pretty racy.
Anything else you saw there?

The Ritcheys received quite a bit of attention, here and on other sites.

A note via James @ cyclingnews, while the bikes shown were fillet brazed, production frames will be TIG welded in Taiwan.
