Straggler is a bikepacking-inspired road/gravel bike mostly at home on pavement but ready for trail duty when called. Born on Gravel. Raised on Pavement Straggler is tuned for cross-over exploration on a wide variety of terrain conditions. It's a day-tripper and a weekender. It's a "rough road" road bike, a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing, a utilitarian townie, a light-duty touring bike and an all-weather commuter. It's a steel gravel bicycle that thrives on the road. Think of it as a "mountain biker's road bike." If you only have room for one bike in your life, Straggler can (and should) be your one and only. Straggler's capabilities go well beyond asphalt. It also lends itself well to light touring setups. We're talking frame bags, seat bags, and "credit card touring" rather than full-blown touring. Straggler also handles our 8- and 24-Pack Racks well, so you have some heavier-duty loading options. - Accommodations for racks and fenders - Forward-exiting horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability - Clearance for 700c x 41mm tires with fenders!
The Aethos line promises three things, exceptional light weight, perfectly balanced ride characteristics, and undeniable style. Aethos: Billions of calculations in the pursuit of one thing, the perfect ride. And with this frame set, you have the perfect canvas to begin creating your dream ride. - A featherweight frame is useless without confidence-inspiring ride characteristics, which is why we've developed the Aethos to have the perfect balance of front and rear stiffness combined with exceptional ride quality. By studying the flexing and breathing of carbon fiber, we were able to discover groundbreaking findings about how forces flow through frames. Just a few pedal strokes and you'll realize this sublime ride sets a new standard. - Every detail, from the derailleur hangers to the fork expander plug have been designed with style, weight, and durability in mind, everything in pursuit for the perfect ride. - The Aethos frame has been designed with the perfect combination of ultimate ride feel, light weight, and style, from accelerating up steep pitches and descending technical descents, to all-day saddle comfort on even the longest coffee rides, the Aethos hits the mark. But how, you ask? By reinventing the traditional road shape found on bikes of the past, we've subtly altered these shapes to deliver massive gains in stiffness and balance, all without affecting weight or durability. Pair that with an entirely new layup and process that we've perfected over multiple decades and you have the lightest frame out there (585 grams, S-Works, size 56cm). The Aethos is more than just a new bike, it's the first of a new breed.
The new Ritchey Road Logic Disc delivers the same amazing ride experience that the bike is known for but adds the stopping power and control of disc brakes. Steeped with more than 40 years of frame-building heritage, innovation, exploration, and lots of riding, the classic lines of this beautiful steel frame and carbon fiber fork unite with modern building techniques and proven materials to deliver a contemporary bicycle that’s wonderfully comfortable for long days in the saddle, nimble and stiff enough to win the sprint for that sign, and adequately adaptable to endure roads that might lack proper pavement. The frame is built with a heat-treated and triple-butted proprietary Ritchey Logic tube set and features a straight headtube and aggressively short-butted sections optimized for TIG welding that save weight and improve ride quality. The tried and true specs on the frame remain unchanged but now sport a redesigned chainstay for flat-mount disc brake compatibility, thru-axles in the front and rear, and a new fork designed specifically for the Road Logic Disc. - Material: heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic steel tubing—TIG welded - Ultra-light forged and machined straight 1-1/8" headtube - WCS headset included (upper IS42/28.6 - 16mm stack height | lower IS42/30) - 142mm spacing (12mm alloy thru-axle included) - Replaceable stainless-steel derailleur hanger - 27.2mm seat tube with integrated seat collar (max torque setting: 6Nm) - Front derailleur clamp size: 28.6mm (max torque setting: 2.5Nm) - not included - Bottom bracket: 68mm - English threaded - Can accommodate 1X or 2X chainrings - Crankset min/max ring size - single: 36 to 50t / double: 46/30t to 53/39t - External cable routing - Bottle mounts: 2 - Ritchey WCS Carbon Disc Road Fork included
