Read it through, great article. I like Ritchey stuff, including my 1990 Fuji steel mt. bike that's a copy of the Ritchey P21. I still ride this thing, only now with a suspension fork, which wasn't available back then.
Good to know that TR found a good outlet for his genius.
I also had no clue about the Jobst connection. I well remember JB from when he was a regular contributor on rec.bicycles.tech and assorted other list forums. A cranky engineer if there ever was one, but jeez does he know his stuff. He also used to regularly post what is now known as a blog about his annual cycling sojourns thru the Alps every summer. Always a good read.
