    It doesn't look like they offer the unpainted version (yet) on the Ritchey web site. If they did, I'd suggest buying the fork then getting it painted by Rick at D+D Cycles, who painted all Ritchey's older frames and the current Heritage series.

    I need to recoat/repaint my fork as it is, replacing it would be half the effort.
    But I'm not going to add another $100-200 to the cost of a new fork for repaint; either I'm replacing, or repainting. Not both.

    Looks like there is a carbon breakaway version of the new Outback being announced on Monday. According to Ritcheylogic Insta feed...

    Last month, we passed Tom and his wife fixing a flat on Portola Road. My son was riding a bike he built that comes apart like a Ritchey Breakaway.
    The Breakaway idea was a good one.

    Well, it is carbon, so I guess there might be fabrication issues that up the price in order to be thoroughly addressed.

    Explorateur looks interesting, but they are all steel bikes. The Ritchey steel frames are half the price of their carbon offerings.

    Both the Outback Carbon Breakaway and the Ascent Breakaway are on the Ritchey site now.
