    The rim brake Road Logic frame is generally good for 30's with Sram or Shimano calipers. Brake shoes down towards the end of their possible extension of course.

    Yes, I've seen this interview. Really, one of the cooler guys in the industry.
    Question about steel fork on road logic comes up around ~30' .
    Also, nothing stops someone from buying a ritchey road logic frame and picking up a stock fork from gunnar or a custom even. Still get a nice modern steel frameset for a pretty darn good deal. Someone do it. :)

    I have the latest vintage Ritchey Breakaway. See pictures of the clearance at the brakes with tires that measure 27mm and Campagnolo Centaur calipers. There's loads of room. 30mm would be no problem, unless the tires are exceptionally tall.

    An awkward moment there from him but interesting to hear his opinion...

    That explains so much in my life! How I managed to ride a Surly LHT for years after the fork bent the front wheel back under the frame in a crash. How a rigid carbon fork managed to trash my Cielo MTB. I could go on. I have been tempted by Ritchey bikes a handful of times in my life, and I've heard from a person acquainted with him he's a real solid dude IRL, but some real talk from TR right here makes me want one all the more.

    Similar to what Nate Zukas does. It's a really nice look.

    Dear Ritchey lovers, any chance someone knows if the Comp Carbon road fork fits 28 mm tyres?
    Specs on the website clearly says up to 25 mm, but I had other forks that said so but easily fit good 28 mm...

    Thanks!

    Wider is apparently better, so have gone with wider tires and wider range XD cassette at the back.

    I always wondered about this possibility. But which fork crown would provide a seamless transition from the integrated headset to the fork crown?

    I was hoping to build this up, but noticed that the previous owner had filed the fork dropouts so that there is a little bit of horizontal play when the axle sits in the dropouts. Sigh.

    Get those forks checked for being straight, you'll never know!
    After that, you can get the dropouts hammered with fine art, to give you back the right fit for the wheel axle. Or use JB-Weld and a piece of 0.05/0.10mm 304 stainless, I've done this many times on worn-out carbon rear dropouts.

    As always Andrea, thank you for providing tech advice. I was thinking of expoxying a thin strip of metal, as you advised, as I can cleary see where they filed. I am happy to know that this is a viable option.

    For sure! That frame is a keeper to be ridden!
