“When I first approached Rich about building my custom 29er, I had no idea of what I was looking for in a bike. I new that I wanted a hard tail and that it should be black. We both threw ideas back and forth and eventually came up with one of the most amazing bicycles I’ve ever ridden. I built it up with Shimano SLX to cut down the cost, so I wasn’t expecting it to be very light when it was all put together. Not only was it incredibly light weight, but it handles like a dream. Rich recommended an over sized head tube, making the steering quick and responsive, and a mixture of several types of steel tubing throughout the rest of the frame, which makes for a smooth and comfortable ride. Now that I’ve had the bike for a few months and really put it through some abuse, its great to see the powder coat clean up like new after each wash.
My bike’s amazing! Thanks Rich!”

I am 100% happy with the new frameset. It fits well, corners well, rides as nice as any I’ve owned. I did my first metric century of the season in Carroll county, MD (Tour de Carroll). The frame was great. It really rides well and I am happy that I have it.

“…every time I’m on my bike my heart fills with gratitude. You have given me back the joy of riding that I first experienced as a boy in France. My Rich Adams bicycle is perfect — beautiful and comfortable. I am amazed at how effortless it is to ride. The frame fits — no sore anything. The gears are a dream, and even the pedals have been less of a challenge than I thought (as long as I remember I’m locked in).”

I have been riding and racing Mountain Bikes since the late 1980s. Being a smaller rider, I decided to go with a custom frame to fit my specific physiology. I could not be more happy with the fit, build quality and attention to detail achieved with my custom Rich Adams 29er. I log a ton of off road miles on my Rich Adams 29er; the bike handles like a nimble rocket, especially as the grade tilts up. It was gratifying to support a local craftsman in Pennsylvania who I visit on occasion for advice. I finally built the bike that I have always imagined.
