Tom Ritchey debuted the original Timberwolf in 1984 to meet the growing demand for a ‘do-it-all’ mountain bike. Today that demand is as loud as ever  so the Ritchey Timberwolf has been re-born.

Whereas as most bikes labelled as do-it-all are full-suspension, the Timberwolf bucks the trend and remains as a hardtail. Although a hardtail is arguably more practical than a full-suss it will potentially lose out on descending and technical climbing.

In fact, if Ritchey’s marketing video is to be believed,it actually seems more of an all-mountain, adventure bike. If that is the case a hardtail makes perfect sense, it’s easier to maintain, more reliable and can be slung on your back for awkward hike-a-bike sections.

The frame is designed to accommodate a 140mm fork with a ‘trail specific’ geometry.  This translates to a head angle of 67°, 432mm chainstays and a 40mm bottom bracket drop.

Although it is not big enough to squeeze in some plus size wheels, you can fit up to 2.4 inch tyres which should be more than wide enough for most riding.

The frame comes with internal routing for a dropper seatpost and can accommodate both 142×12 and standard QR axles.

It will cost $1195.95 (£1,300)
