Yes Ritchey makes bikes. Before Tom Ritchey was best known for making handlebars, stems, and seatposts, he was a highly regarded framebuilder. Although his focus has changed, Ritchey is still involved in many aspects of product development in the company that bares his name. He helps choose the tube diameter, taper, wall thickness, and butting profile. These frames are a evolution of the first frames he built 40 yrs ago in his parents garage.
The Road Logic is 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 proprietary forged-and-machined integrated head tube uses standard drop-in bearings and saves 80 grams over a standard head tube design.
With room for many 700x28c tires 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 take the sprint in the Tuesday Night World Championships. Gravel? No prob, as Ritchey says “I thought every bike was a gravel bike”
The Swiss Cross is my personal favourite. Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. Believe me, Frischy know a thing or two about Cross.
