SAN CARLOS, Calif. – Bicycle component company Ritchey Design announced today it will showcase the two newest framesets in the Break-Away line of bicycles at the Sea Otter Classic, April 17-20 in Monterey, Calif. Ritchey will be located in booth #728 by team parking in the event sponsor area.

The two newest models, the steel single speed road and full titanium mountain framesets, continue to round out the Break-Away line which now offers four road, two cross and one mountain bike models. When fully assembled, these bikes match the performance standards of non-travel bikes.

“Ritchey has seen an enormous increase in the demand for and popularity of adventure travel and Break-Away bicycles and framesets,” said Steve Parke, general manager and vice president of marketing for Syncros. “When disassembled, these bikes fit in a 9x27x30 inch travel case, making it an easy fit with airline check in procedures or the back of a compact rental car. Regardless of the model, there is no excuse for leaving your bike at home and not getting a ride in while on a business trip or vacation.”

In addition to the latest Break-Away models, Ritchey will also have the following new components on display:
