Stan and his team know how to strike when the iron is hot!!! Another rim designed with XC racing in mind, the Medalist. It looks like its going to be a nice low profile yet wide-ish rim. Gone are the days of the tube. And I just stocked up on my Stan's sealant!! PERFECT TIMING.

Alloy 650B wheelsets, tires and a carbon rigid fork will all be in the mix for the long-time component and frame maker. All these great parts are great, but what to hang them on?? Well, Ritchey decided that this isn't enough and is bringing in a rigid steel frame offering, too!
Look for shipping product after the great INTERBIKE EXPO!
