Few can claim to have played a bigger hand in the evolution of the mountain bike than Tom Ritchey. And he’s still at it. The original Timberwolf debuted in 1984 as Tom’s answer to the growing demand for a mountain bike that could handle more of anything. Reborn 30 years later, the Timberwolf is a hardtail incarnation of an all-mountain trail bike that can shred anything you throw at it. Designed around 650b wheels, the Timberwolf is agile and fluid whether bushwacking the mountainside or carving single track. It’s the bike we can’t stop riding.
Tom Ritchey built his first road frame 40 years ago in his parent's garage, and went on to bring numerous innovations to the craft. The Road Logic carries many of the subtleties and details gleaned from Tom's vast experience with steel frames, destined to be a modern classic. Tom designed an all-new, heat-treated and triple-butted Ritchey Logic tubeset for the new Road Logic, featuring aggressively short-butted sections optimized for TIG welding that save weight and improve ride quality. Ritchey's forged-and-machined integrated head tube uses standard drop-in bearings and saves 80 grams over a standard head tube design. With room for larger road tires (up to 700x28c depending on make and model) and classic Ritchey geometry, the Road Logic is ideally suited for long, epic days in the saddle on roads that are not always paved, and still nimble and stiff enough to take the county line sprint at the end of the day.
The Swiss Cross Disc blends Ritchey's cyclocross racing heritage with up-to-date geometry and tubing, and as always, the sweet, perfectly balanced ride that Ritchey is known for. The Swiss Cross Disc is handmade to Tom Ritchey's exacting standards, and includes: Heat treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic CrMo steel tubing throughout Forged and machined head tube with integrated cups for use with drop-in headsets – lighter and stronger than a standard head tube Straight carbon steer tube with optimized layup for stiffness under braking forces without excessive harshness Ritchey WCS Carbon disc cross fork, painted to match Full length housing stops for use with cable or hydraulic brakes Front: 140/160mm rotor compatible; Rear: 160mm rotor compatibility Ritchey socket dropouts 135mm rear spacing Room for tires up to 38c tires, depending on tire and rim manufacturer 10.30 kg / 22.7 lbs (55 cm)
The return of the legendary Ritchey Mountain Bike. Tom Ritchey applied decades of racing, designing and building steel mountain bikes into the P-29er. Like any Ritchey, this bike is born to go fast without sacrificing comfort or durability. Heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II tubing in our own unique butting profiles results in a frame that balances rough trail compliance with sprint-winning stiffness. The 29er-specific geometry was defined by the best way we know: countless hours of saddle time under Tom Ritchey, World Cup legend Thomas Frischknecht and other racers. The result: nimble handling that captures the benefits of the big wheels, stable but not sluggish, equally at home on all-day epics or tight, technical singletrack race courses.
