Eurobike 2015: Ritchey

by 1

We like the look of the new Timberwolf from Ritchey – the name was originally used for a sort do-it-all mountain bike back in 1984 – the bike has changed a bit since then:

IMG_0100 It’s designed around a 140mm fork, and the dropouts switch between QR and 142×12…

IMG_0101a 30.9 seat tube with stealth routing… IMG_0102 A forged and machined tapered head tube (elegant, no?)

IMG_0103 Rear brake on the chainstays – and some unusual hose routing…

IMG_0108Ritchey also had some new tyres on show. The Trail Bite is a front or rear rotational specific tread “that bites into the terrain for excellent control in all conditions”. 27.5in or 29in versions available in a 2.25 width.

IMG_0110 And the Trail Drive. 2.25 again (but a wide 2.25), soft compound rubber and 27.5 or 29in tyre.IMG_0112 Ritchey also had their Trail wheelset on the stand, but they weren’t making much of a song and dance about it.IMG_0113And here’s the Ritchey P-29. It’s a great looking bike – not sure about the inverted stem though…
