Before you get your hopes up, be warned: the Swiss Cross is back in production but it’s not for public consumption. While there are plans for a Taiwanese tig-welded version, these handmade bikes are for friends and family. Ritchey may be one of the biggest names in mountain bike history but one of his most cherished bikes of all time is the Swiss Cross. This was one of my favorite bikes at the 2011 NAHBS and Ritchey Bicycle Components had a killer booth!
Check out a slideshow from my coverage of the 2011 NAHBS Ritchey Bicycle Components booth below.
