One of the shop owners has the previous generation Ritchey outback… and has been quoted as saying ‘its the best bike I’ve ever ridden’
The Ritchey logic magic is real, ride quality on a whole new level!
The thing that makes the new Ritchey Outback frame so special is Tom’s attention to detail, Tom Ritchey spent 2 years designing the rear ‘Flat Mount’ dropout to ensure that the frame was up to date and as light as the previous iteration, absolutely no compromises.
The 2024 Outback has a beautiful and even lighter rear dropout!
Tom Ritchey rides about 10,000 miles (16,000 km) per year, and most of that is off-road. Combine that with his more than 50 years of designing and building bicycles, and it’s no wonder the Outback has become an icon in the gritty world of gravel and adventure bikes.
Wrapped in tasty Guac y Crema paint, or the new Granite & Snow colorway, the Outback sports several practical and adaptable features that offer riders the ability to chase epic ride experiences beyond the end of the road and the end of the day. Rack and fender mounts help to keep things dry and expand the load-carrying capacity for longer bikepacking adventures, while clearance for 700c x 48mm or 650b x 2.0in tires opens up a whole new world of possibilities. Doubling down on the Outback’s practical performance, an all-carbon fiber Ritchey Adventure Fork with multi-purpose mounts on the legs gives you more places to stow the supplies you gather at the last café.
The Outback is painstakingly TIG-welded with proprietary triple-butted Ritchey Logic steel tubing that now sports an updated one-piece truss design for flat mount brakes* – providing as much stiffness and strength of previous mounts while significantlyreducing chainstay weight.
Bikepacking, road, off-road, trail, expedition, you name it…the Ritchey Outback is designed do it all.
