Ritchey Releases 2018 Road Logic Frameset
SPARKS, USA – Capitalizing upon more than forty years of innovation, heritage and exploration in bicycle frame building, Ritchey is updating its iconic Road Logic frameset for 2018 with wider tire clearance and a new Ritchey carbon fork. Built with Ritchey’s proprietary Logic steel tubing, this beautiful TIG-welded frame delivers a combination of classic aesthetics, modern features, and top performance desired by discerning riders around the world.
“We have seen the road bike market moving towards frames and forks that feature wider tire clearance for a more comfortable ride experience on varying surfaces. The 2018 Road Logic meets those demands by offering our legendary steel road frame with increased tire clearance and a new carbon fork,” says Jeff Lockwood, Ritchey International Marketing Manager.
The Road Logic accepts tires up to 30mm wide (depending on specific tire manufacturer measurements), and is coated in a new Skyline Blue paint scheme. The 2018 Road Logic frameset, which includes the new Road Logic frame, new Ritchey WCS Full Carbon Fork and Logic Zero WCS drop-in 1-1/8″ headset is priced at €1299.90/£1120 (VAT inc.).
Out of the box solution
The 2018 Comp Road Logic complete bike offers the new frameset along with a more affordable component spec. The build is carefully chosen to provide top-level performance at a more affordable price.
“With the success of, and interest in, our WCS-level Road Logic bike, we also had a call for a more affordable option from dealers. Many are custom building a 105-level Road Logic bike for customers, so we decided to ease the process by making a simple ‘out-of-the-box’ solution,” explains Riccardo Deliziosi, Ritchey Global Director of Sales.
The Comp Road Logic features a Shimano 105 drivetrain, Ritchey Comp 4-Axis stem, Ritchey Comp Curve bar, Ritchey Comp 2-Bolt seat post, and Ritchey Comp Zeta wheels. Pricing for the 2018 Comp Ritchey Road Logic complete bike is set at €2399.90/£2099 (VAT inc.). Both the 2018 Road Logic frameset and Comp Road Logic complete bike are available for sale immediately.
