While Tom Ritchey might have made his name in the 1980s for his MOUNTAIN BIKEs, he was making road frames back in the 70s. This bike was built when Tom was just 19 years old and building in his parent’s garage in Palo Alto. What is so cool about modern Ritchey bikes is you can see the 1970s and 1980s Ritchey frames in their DNA. See more of this beaut at Vintage MTB Workshop.
