Ritchey's story began more than 35 years ago out of dissatisfaction with the parts that existed in his time. Heavy wheels and components that lacked functionality and elegance. With like-minded friends, Tom Ritchey created a new genre of bikes to race down Mount Tamalpais - mountain bikes. Over time, Tom's company Ritchey Design has expanded its product range to include numerous other components in addition to frames - innovative, light and stable products that meanwhile bring fun to generations of riders on the tracks. The inspiration for new parts often comes when Ritchey is riding on his bike. Together with his development team, Tom Ritchey puts his ideas into practice, striving to create ingenious improvements for existing products as well as breakthrough innovations. Thanks to decades of experience, a well thought-out design has been developed that defies fast-moving trends.
