    Great to see smartly spec'd complete bikes listed on the Ritchey website! Love how the Timberwolf MTB comes with a mix of SRAM drivetrain and Shimano brakes. Someone put a lot of thought into getting the right mix of components instead shaving costs to hit customary pricepoints.

    Thanks! Yes, we did put a lot of thought into the spec on these guys, and I'm glad that you recognized it.

    Help requested w/ a Breakaway Cross and Avid Shorty Ultimates: I've had my Breakaway for 4 years and love it but have never packed it and traveled with it. I'm taking my first trip next week and am prepping. The Ritchey videos show a road model with the young lady removing the front brake caliper to pack. I can't easily do this with an Ultimate. Do you think I pack the handlebars still attached to the front brake levers? Has anyone else tried this? Any suggestions? I really do not want to take off the right brake caliper and have to deal with readjusting it while away. Help please.

    Dave-
    I'm trying to replace the bearings on a set of DS Pro's but I can't seem to get the NDS dust cap off. It appears to be a Zero V1 hub without set screws. Any suggestions on getting it off?

    Does Ritchey sell touch up paint for their frames? I have an orange and gray Breakaway Cross, and the orange color is difficult to match with hobby paints.

    Unfortunately, we no longer have any touch up paint for that version. Hobby paint is what I'd say is your best bet.

    Does Ritchey have or plan to make a breakaway CX frame that will allow for disc brakes? I would love a titanium one!

    Thanks, I tried to find more details about the Ascent, but I guess it is so new, there isn't too much information out there yet. So I have a few questions:
    1) Does it take thru axles or QR?
    2) Would it be possible to use hydraulic brakes?
    3) Can it take Di2 groupset?
    4) What is the offset of the rear spacing?
    5) What is the weight of the frameset?
    6) I know this will vary depending on components used, but what do you estimate a fully built Ascent would weight?
    7) Do you have any pictures of an Ascent broken down, packed in a box?
    8) What is the biggest size tires that will fit with fenders?

    QR

    2) Would it be possible to use hydraulic brakes?
    In order for you to be able to separate the cables to take apart the frame, we went mechanical routing.

    3) Can it take Di2 groupset?
    Yes

    4) What is the offset of the rear spacing?
    135mm

    5) What is the weight of the frameset?
    roughly 6.75 lbs with fork

    6) I know this will vary depending on components used, but what do you estimate a fully built Ascent would weight?
    Very hard to say, especially given the versatility of this frame and what you set it up with. We've had people set it up as a full on mountain bike, racked up touring bike, or a lighter weight cross bike.

    7) Do you have any pictures of an Ascent broken down, packed in a box?
    No, but if you search online there are plenty of pictures of the other two versions broken down and packed. It's pretty much the same.

    8) What is the biggest size tires that will fit with fenders?
    Also depends, you can use 650B wheels and tires, or 700c. I had some Clement USH 700x35 tires and fenders on mine, and there was plenty of room still.

    Dave, if you used something like the Speed Lock Hose from Formula , would that allow me to use hydraulic brakes? Or are you saying that the hydraulic lines would not physically fit on the frame? Sorry, I am kind of a newbie.

    Also, I thought I read that the Ritchey travel cases are bigger than the 62" allowed by the airlines as regular luggage. Is this true or have the cases been redesigned and this is no longer an issue?

    You could but you might need to MacGyver it a little. There are cable stops on the chainstay just before the rear brake that you'd need to bypass. Not the end of the world, but not exactly super smooth looking either.

    The cases are a hair over the maximum cubic allowance for most airlines. We've tried to reduce the case size to meet this but it wouldn't be ideal, mostly because of the ease of assembly and disassembly would be effected. That being said, it is rarely called on by airlines. Search the internet and you will find most Breakaway users confirm this. I travel many times a year, and bring my Breakaway with me on most my trips, and in the fives years since I had mine, have never been charged for over sized luggage. However it's worth knowing the situation.

    Hi,
    I am about to order a Ritchey Logic Road frame.
    I understand you typically do not provide sizing advice, but would appreciate some guidance....
    I am 176 cm tall and 79 cm inseam.

    My current bike is a size 51 Orbea Orca. Stack is a bit low but I can sort with 2/3 cm of spacers.

    The Logic frame sizes 51 and 53 have the same reach (1 mm difference). Stack is different, but can handle both (spacer or inverting stem).

    I rather the nimbleness of size 51 frame. My question is if you think I will have too much seat post sticking out or is 51 OK?

    thanks!

    You should be fine with a 51cm.

    Just gotta say that I love my Breakaway Cross! It is such a fun bike to ride, on roads as well as trails.

    Hey Nyk, couple of questions regarding the Breakaway series of bikes

    How big of tires can the Ritchey BreakAway Road Ti accommodate?

    Where can I find geometry information for the BreakAway Road TI or the BreakAway Cross Ti?

    Since the titanium models are not listed on the ritcheylogic site, are they technically discontinued and everyone sells new old stock?

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't try and put more than a 25c (depending on the brand) into the Road Ti Breakaway. I've seen people push that, but then you risk rubbing the fork crown or having some debris get lodged in the frame. We have discontinued all of our titanium models. I don't have any digital info on the frames. Anyone selling our Ti models should have that information.
    Cheers.

    Nyk,

    Thanks for checking in. I will proceed with researching in the new direction provided.
