“To the mountains, shelter for the ones escaping the nonsense…”
The industry’s idea of a ‘do it all’ bike has evolved quite a lot over the years, but it’s hard to argue with the forthcoming crop of 27.5in dropper-ready hardtails. And we’re quite taken with Ritchey’s 2016 Timberwolf– a bright orange steel hardtail built for 27.5+ wheels with stealth routing and perhaps the loveliest head tube in all of lovelidom.
Was the video’s big day out inspired by the bike, or the Timberwolf name resurrected in order to justify scenic Alpine adventures on Tom’s tab? Either way, the combination has us reaching for the maps.
