NAHBS 2019 Bike Check with MARS Cycles

Ritchey Classic is more than just an accent piece to tie the aesthetic together for that certain build. The Classic line falls between the race proven performance of WCS and price conscious Comp levels. Utilizing the best of both lines, Classic offers a lightweight high quality build that only Ritchey can offer.

Builder Casey Sussman, of MARS Cycles, has used our Break-Away coupling system to create a unique take on a classy bike that’s as comfortable abroad as it is at home. Built around a Ritchey WCS carbon road fork, his bike is capable of high-volume tires that all-road riders crave. Using a full Classic build, his Break-Away road bike is accented with robust 30c WCS Alpine JB tires, sleek WCS Streem saddle and WCS Race bar tape.
