The first Ritchey to be labeled Timberwolf was introduced back in the mid-eighties when hordes day-glo clad riders yearned for a bike to get dirty with. The frame that now bears the name is as trail-worthy as they get with a design that includes a compact rear-end and geometry suited to a 140mm suspension fork up front. Add 27.5 inch wheels with 2.4 tires to the mix to make the Timberwolf a ride that craves berms, jumps and endless wheelies. Teach yourself some new tricks with the Ritchey Timberwolf frameset.
Ritchey gets down and dirty with the new Timberwolf 27.5 frame. Made to climb quickly and have fun on the way back down the Timberwolf is set to lead the pack. A custom forged headtube and Ritchey steel tube-set assure nothing but good times on the trail. Frame geometry is dialed-in to long trail rides and less cross-country specific than other Ritchey designs. The Timberwolf is available as a frame-only, and is dropper-post compatible, giving the rider numerous options to build the fun-riding hardtail of their dreams. Its rear drop-outs will accept either a standard QR skewer or 142×12 thru-axle that it comes stock with. Bolting a 140mm fork up front, such as a RockShox Pike or Fox Float 32, will let you aim for jumps and running a set of 2.4 inch knobbies will keep this hardtail from feeling harsh. Pull ahead of the pack on a new Timberwolf frame from Ritchey.
