Tom Ritchey Interview – Tandem Breakaway

26er Company Spotlight

We interviewed cycling legend Tom Ritchey and he enlightened us with his 40 years of bike building expertise. He had several things to show including a new Road Logic triple butted steel bike that will be available in late July of this year as a frameset for $1199. Also featured is the 40th Anniversary commemorative frames that Tom is making himself. He is building 40 fillet brazed steel frames to help raise money for charity.

In this video, Tom goes into detail about a side of cycling that he enjoys with his wife…riding tandems. And if you’re Tom Ritchey, you don’t build just any ordinary tandem. This is a Ritchey Breakaway Tandem that you can use on the road (700c) or trails (650B). Tom also discusses how bikes have been a creative outlet for him and how he enjoys being a part of the bike culture.
