Ritchey Bottom Brackets

Ritchey B/B Delivery Warning Notice

Remember, Ritchey has no manufacturing facility of their own. They have factories manufacture & package goods bearing the Ritchey brand name. Ritchey has had their Bottom Brackets made in Japan, which has proved awkward lately because of the dollar/yen exchange rate. Japanese goods have risen about 22% against the dollar which the currency that Ritchey backs all their calculations into. The dollar weakness has forced Ritchey to re-evaluate what they can afford to sell, now that American made B/B's will be so in-expensive relative to any Japanese B/B they can import. Shortages of Ritchey B/B's have already shown themselves, and there will be dry spell with price increases when they re-appear.


The Logic Comp's design and Cro-moly materials provide a light B/B, weighing only 289 grams (including 31.5 grams being the crank bolts). The Logic Comp uses a Cro-moly, forged spindle, that is all Black in color. The Comp has precision ground bearing cup races, with a deeply recessed rubber gasket at each spindle end.

Produced in Japan, the bearing retainers appear to be the same as those used in the XC Pro and Superbe Pro B/B. They have eleven 1/4" balls in a retainer. The spindle is now only available in the 120mm length. English thread only. $Price in Catalog
