It’s hard to believe that Tom Ritchey has been welding bicycle frames for five decades, but this 50th Anniversary Road Logic frameset and complete bike celebrate the milestone in style.
With a classic rim brake build on a chromoly steel frame, and an understated Pacific Azul color, it’s a modern nod to his heritage. With only 150 frames to be made, it’s sure to sell out fast, too. Here’s the details…
The Road Logic originally debuted 30 years ago, and they’ve offered it ever since. The latest frame is TIG welded, heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic steel tubing. They say the tubes use “aggressively short” butted sections to save weight and contribute a more lively ride feel. Claimed frame weight is 1,750g for size 55.
Up front is a 350g (uncut) Ritchey WCS carbon fork with straight 1-1/8″ steerer sitting inside a forged and machined ultralight headtube. A WCS headset is included.
Cable routing is external, naturally, and it’s fitted with a 68mm threaded bottom bracket shell. Compatible chainring sizes range from 46/30 up to 53/39.
Standard quick-release dropouts hold the wheels front and rear, and fortunately Ritchey’s still offering high end rim brake wheels to fit them. The frame will clear up to 700x30mm tires.
It fits a 27.2mm diameter seatpost with an integrated seat collar.
Six frame sizes will be offered, using two different forks to provide consistent handling across the size range.
Shown here fully built, you’ll only be able to buy it as a frameset for $1,499 USD.
