About Ritchey Bicycle Components

Tom Ritchey is one-of-a-kind. He continues to juggle his duties as president and lead designer of the Ritchey company, now distributed in over 40 countries, while still logging 10,000 miles a year all over the world.  Inspiration often comes to him while out on a ride, generating ideas that he then processes as three-dimensional design images – in his head. This is followed by the creation of initial concept models, many of which he creates by fillet brazing pieces or scraps of frame tubing. It all comes naturally to a guy who taught himself to build frames as a teenager, and who designed some of the burgeoning mountain bike industry’s first frames and components back in the 1970’s.
