New Ritchey Rigid MTB Fork

Not even on their website, so you see it here first kids, the new Ritchey carbon mountain bike fork:

Right now, all they're advertising is this model which appears to meet the same needs but has a significantly more sculpted look and no claimed weight. I wonder if they'll come out with a 29er version where rigid forks are pretty common? I tried to get some facts from one of the ladies in the booth but she turned out to be PR and didn't know a ton of product detail. Friendly though.

Thomas, try calling your local Ritchey dealing bike shop. They probably place an order once a week or so, given all that Ritchey makes.
