We think by now, most of you get what Straggler is. It’s a madly versatile bike that can be used for most types of riding and riding surfaces. Better still is that you now have the option of 650b wheel size. 650b wheels were popular for a long time many years ago on ‘Constructeur’ style bicycles and we all know how real stuff was back in the day…650b wheels strike a nice balance between the benefits of both 26” and 700c sizes. The smaller wheel allows smaller riders to fit well on smaller frames, produces a stronger wheel, makes fitting big-ass tires easier and are more agile than their larger counterparts. Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing. Straggler 650b has braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it’s ready to take you just about anywhere. It’s a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie. It’s a light-duty touring bike. It’s an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that’s pretty neat.
Possibly the most iconic frame associated with Ritchey, the Swiss Cross draws its name from early factory rider, cyclocross, and mountain bike legend Thomas Frischknecht. The first iteration of the Swiss Cross was a no-holds-barred race machine designed for one thing: ripping through dirt like no other. Captained to numerous victories under Frischi, the Swiss Cross went on to become one of the most revered frames of the Ritchey offering. Twenty-five years later, the Swiss Cross is still a staple of the Ritchey fleet—now featuring modern standards such as 12mm thru-axles, flat-mount brakes, and higher-volume tire clearance. Yet one thing has remained unchanged: it is still a no-holds-barred race-ready dirt ripper. Whether it's leading the charge on bell lap or ticking off the grueling miles of a gravel grinder, the new Swiss Cross is more than capable of tackling it all. - Material: heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic steel tubing - TIG welded - Ultra-light forged and machined straight 1-1/8" headtube - WCS headset included (IS42/28.6|IS42/30) - 142mm spacing (12mm alloy thru-axle included) - Replaceable stainless-steel derailleur hanger - 27.2mm seat tube with integrated seat collar (max torque setting: 6Nm) - Front derailleur clamp size: 28.6mm (max torque setting: 2.5Nm) - not included - Bottom bracket: 68mm - English threaded - Can accommodate 1X or 2X chainrings - Crankset min/max ring size - single: 36 to 46t / double: 46/30t to 50/34t - External cable routing - Bottle mounts: 2 - Ritchey WCS Carbon Cross Disc Fork included
