NAHBS 2019 Bike Check with W.H. Bradford Designs
North American Handmade Bicycle Show is a treat we get to participate in every year by working with our partners in the custom builder community. This year we featured 4 different custom steel bike builders in our booth, each with a different take on our individual lines from WCS gravel to Classic. Brad's all mountain MTB ripper is the perfect tool for the job for NorCal trails.
If there is one thing Ritchey is known for, it’s mountain. The first to design MTB specific components, Tom knew what the demands off-road riding of that caliber required. Fast forward 40 years and Ritchey is still producing robust, lightweight components suitable for the roughest riders without breaking the bank.
In this rowdy all-mountain wrangler, WH Bradford has incorporated the rugged capability of the WCS Trail line in a no holds barred ride. Bradford’s hardtail is the kind of ride most NorCal riders are accustomed to for the amount of variety of riding found in the state.
