I had a chance to take a quick spin on an early Ritchey (Everest?) a friend
had restored, and was similarly amazed at how well a fully rigid bike could
ride. The geometry looked antique & outdated until I actually rode the
bike; it was a revelation in how comfortable, intuitive, and responsive a
rigid bike could be. The monster-trucking capabilities of modern squishy bikes
are amazing, but is seems there is an equally amazing parallel universe of
capability in bikes designed without suspension. As suspension has become more
sorted, geometry has become the focal point of development. Perhaps geometry
is the wormhole that makes this parallel universe accessible once more?
