It can be said that Ritchey frames are as iconic as the European masters that came before. Truly contemporary classics, Ritchey bike frames are for discerning cyclists who want a timeless bicycle that is sure to be the subject of discussion at any club ride or local. From the forged, machined headtube to the force directional, location-specific butted tubing, Ritchey bikes are more than classy steel frames. They're a logical choice when looking to build up your next dream bike.
A good bike is the sum of its parts, with the frame being the most significant variable of the equation. When designing the right frame for gravel and adventure rides, Ritchey pays careful attention to all aspects of a potential build. Be it optimal tire clearance in combination with one particular groupset or another, or load potential over uncertain ground, Ritchey adventure frames are the right choice for the ride.
What elevates Ritchey road frames above others in the market is more than 40 years of knowledge and experience that runs though each and every tube. Ritchey road frames are as iconic as any Italian brand and as rich in palmares as any steel frame on the market. Each and every Ritchey road bike frame is the result of Tom Ritchey’s deep cycling heritage and never-ending quest for innovation.

Ritchey mountain bike frames carry a pedigree few-—if any—can rival. Each Ritchey mountain bike is informed by decades of the skill, mastery and insight that comes from building thousands of bicycle frames before ever tackling the first MTB that bore the Ritchey name. By employing a ceaseless dedication to hands-on research, innovation and creativity, modern Ritchey mountain bikes deliver the same level of satisfaction and enjoyment as they did at the birth of the sport so many years ago.
Few bikes in the world are as iconic as the Ritchey Swiss Cross. Named after Thomas Frischneckt, Tom Ritchey incorporated Frischi's valuable insight and articulate feedback in developing the race-winning geometry of the Swiss Cross. Today's Swiss Cross is a modern cyclocross machine designed for performance, comfort and reaching the podium.
