“Tom Ritchey welded up his first bicycle in his parents’ garage more than 50 years ago – when he was only 15-years old. Since then, he has continued riding, researching, designing, and building legendary bicycle frames and components that have inspired generations of cyclists to experience great rides, influenced legions within the bicycle industry, and have won countless championships.”
“Almost from the start, Tom would point whatever bike he was riding towards the end of the tarmac to wherever that would lead. Along with his mentor Jobst Brandt and an ever-changing cast of riding friends, Tom would ride endless paths, trails and dirt roads on all-day adventures. Those rides nearly 50 years ago (and ever since) directly influence the bikes we ride today, such as the Ritchey Outback – an icon in the gritty world of gravel and adventure bikes.”
“To celebrate Ritchey’s 50th anniversary and Tom’s enduring and influential spirit of off-road adventure, the 50th Anniversary Outback proudly sports a Half Moon Blue paint scheme – an amazingly beautiful light blue to deep blue fade that truly moves the soul. Additionally, this limited-edition gravel rig is adorned with special Ritchey logos that reference the company’s history and the influence Palo Alto, California has had on Tom.”
