Just noticed on the Ritchey website.

Thats a Ti cross bike with the breakaway system. They only make breakaways these days, but it would be nice to see a Ritchey designed Ti mountain bike 8)

The normal breakaways are built in conjunction with Dahon, so probably not designed by Ritchey and then built in Taiwan :cry:

Most Ritchey frames were/are made in Taiwan. A friend of mine who still works in the bike industry, was visiting asia last year for a large dutch bike manafacturer. He met a guy in Taiwan who built the Ritchey frames, an asian which was also called John (his western name!).
He was told that the man was trained by Tom Ritchey himself.
