NAHBS 2019 Bike Check with W.H. Bradford Designs

If there is one thing Ritchey is known for, it’s mountain.  The first to design MTB specific components, Tom knew what the demands off-road riding of that caliber required. Fast forward 40 years and Ritchey is still producing robust, lightweight components suitable for the roughest riders without breaking the bank.

In this rowdy all-mountain wrangler, WH Bradford has incorporated the rugged capability of  the WCS Trail line in a no holds barred ride. Bradford’s hardtail is the kind of ride most NorCal riders are accustomed to for the amount of variety of riding found in the state.
