Ritchey Components for 2013!

Just announced to join the 650B market is Ritchey Components.  Recently, Tom fabricated a tandem that made use of both 700c road wheels and offered clearance for 650B knobby tires.  I suppose that was just a prelude of things to come.  Today they officially released info regarding the 2013 line-up. 
Alloy 650B wheelsets, tires and a carbon rigid fork will all be in the mix for the long-time component and frame maker.  All these great parts are great, but what to hang them on??  Well, Ritchey decided that this isn't enough and is bringing in a rigid steel frame offering, too!
Look for shipping product after the great INTERBIKE EXPO!
