His latest passion is Project Rwanda, which strives to further economic development in Rwanda through initiatives based on the bicycle. Inspiration often comes to him while out on a ride, generating ideas that he then processes as three-dimensional design images – in his head. This is followed by the creation of initial concept models, many of which he creates by fillet brazing pieces or scraps of frame tubing. It all comes naturally to a guy who taught himself to build frames as a teenager, and who designed some of the burgeoning mountain bike industry’s first frames and components back in the 1970’s. Every year Tom guides our R&D efforts in pursuit of both subtle improvements to existing products, or large-scale advances leading to new ones. www.ritcheylogic.com

  • Shimano

    In 1961, a 3-speed bicycle hub displayed at the New York Toy Show was the catalyst for what would eventually become Shimano American Corporation. The popularity of 20-inch wheeled bikes with hi-rise handle bars fueled a demand for multi-speed hubs and Shimano was producing an affordable and reliable version that caught the attention of the industry. So much so, that by 1965, Yoshizo Shimano, the youngest son of the company founder in Japan, opened an office in New York to get quicker product feedback and to provide technical and warranty assistance to retailers selling bikes equipped with Shimano parts. www.shimano.com

  • Stan's NOTUBES

    Tires that mount directly onto rims and hold air without the need for a separate inner tube are so common in automotive and motorcycle circles that trying to explain their use on modern bicycles hardly seems necessary. Simply put, bicycle tire and rim technology has evolved. Stan's NoTubes was established to offer a better tubeless tire system. Using his exceptional ingenuity, Stan devised the original NoTubes sealing system in 2001—the same system that today has become the preferred tubeless conversion system around the world. Before anyone in the industry had even considered the concept, Stan had seen the future and was already innovating again, developing tubeless rims with short side walls and his patented Bead Socket Technology. Yet to be equalled by the competition, BST marks a huge step forward in tubeless technology, allowing for lighter rims, lower sidewall heights, improved durability, increased traction, and decreased chances of pinch flatting. Utilizing the same genius that helped him develop the tubeless system, Stan has developed a superior line of tubeless ready rims and wheelsets that offer all new levels of performance. All NoTubes rims share Stan's race-proven designs, designs found only in a company built by riders, for riders, and constantly dedicated to innovation. www.notubes.com
