Jeffrey Richman Overview
Jeffrey Richman's output is so small that he wouldn't normally been included in this timeline, except for his connections to the birth of mountain biking. Before Tom Ritchey delivered his first frames to Kelly & Fisher, Jeff Richman was asked by Fisher to make three mountain bikes. Jeff delivered a few weeks after Ritchey and his bikes are now lost to history.
“Before it became obvious that Tom Ritchey could make more bikes than any four or five other people, Gary shopped the project to Jeffrey Richman, who made a couple of bikes that went to a married couple.” Charles Kelly Mountain Bike Reviews Forum
Jeff continued to make occasional road and mountain bikes. His total output is unknown.
