Ritchey components are designed, manufactured, and tested by Tom Ritchey and his team of well trained cycling experts. Back in the 1970s, Tom was handcrafting bike frames by himself - determined to improve his own road racing experience. His passion remains in the DNA of the company today and as a result - we all have the privilege to upgrade our rides with quality Ritchey components. A Ritchey seatpost can enhance your bike's comfort and durability - the carbon Ritchey seatpost reduces weight, which can improve your speed. Ritchey stems are designed to channel pressure equally through the stem body and handlebars. It's attention to detail like this that will transform your entire ride.
