    Ritchey Road Logic 2.0 - how does it ride/compare and the frame material

    Ok I'm hovering between two framesets, the 2.0 Logic or a English made Columbus frame.

    I'm drawn to the Ritchey as it looks ...well stealth and nice. However two concerns are stopping me:

    The frame material- I keep thinking its cost-down and some Tange or 4130-stuff mass produced in a Taiwanese factory like everyone else? Can someone debunk this fear?

    I know theres marketing but I can easily say I've personally selected and added stuff but cant say what.

    (Sorry to be slightly cynical- tbh this is probably the part that is holding me back).

    Second question- how does it ride? I can only find one review.

    Is it a sturdy'bird that is more Surly than higher end steel etc?

    Cheeky last question- no way I can fit a 1 1/8 Chris King headset?

    Thank you for your help

    Not sure if I'm too late for the party but

    Road Logic 2.0 tubing, it is not off the shelf tubing. It's our own proprietary tubing blend with very specific butting profiles. This makes for a light weight steel frame that is still, responsive and lively. Tom Ritchey, still owner and head designer of Ritchey, prides himself on his vast knowledge of frame tubing and the various characteristics each piece adds to the ride.

    Check out roadbikereview.com for a ton of people talking about the Road Logic 2.0 and how it rides.

    Lastly, the frames come with our WCS headset, which is our top of the line headset.

    Thank you. I found a chip in the paint of my Logic (probably from my sons car seat during transportation). I'll post up a pic. Ideas on repairs?

    Question for the forum members or Ritchey Dave: Although I sure it can't be recommended, am I doing any lasting harm to a road logic frame if I slide 135 XT hubs into the 130 dropouts? Thanks.

    Model paint is fantastic as a touch up paint. Bring your bike to a hobby shop and you'll almost certainly find a near perfect match with the huge selection of model paint they usually have.
