SAN CARLOS, Calif. – March 2, 2010 -Ritchey Design, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-quality road and mountain bike components, today announced its new World Championship Series (WCS) Alloy and Carbon Curve Bars are available to consumers through independent bicycle dealers nation-wide.
