What road bike do you have?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

i think mine is just a squeak under 20.

20 is simultaneously beyond adequate, extremely light within the whole spectrum, and fairly hefty in the modern road era of aluminum, carbon, and mid grade plus components.

Couldn't pass up this offer - $900 for a 2010 PX stealth with SRAM Red, carbon bars, and carbon levers/shifters. Guess I'll brag about it in another post when I get it all set up.

Thanks, I get quite a few compliments on it. Even the guys at the LBS said it looked pretty good. They weighed it since they were interested and it come out 18 lbs w/ pedals. The seatpost is some alloy w/ carbon around it. If I get that changed I can probably lower the weight a bit more.

2009 Madone 5.5 Pro w/full SRAM Red group. No, I'm not going for the Captain America look. Just had some extra Pro3's around that unfortunately happened to be red.

yes, a proper time trialer is purely an instrument of pain. drop mounted aerobars are saddening.

It's shown here, but with a few differences:

https://ritte.graymarketagency.com/st...iewspecs/id/64

Apparently, Ritte's Bosberg frame was banned by the UCI:

... psst.. it's just a marketing video..

Ah, yup, you're right. Now that you mention that it's probably a rebranded frame, I think I've seen those seatstays somewhere else.

I think their paint schemes rock, though. Nobody else is doing anything like that.

the paint is amazing, but it it worth another $1400 on top of a $800 frame? 800 v 2200 is tough.

Quote from another forum...

Hey everybody,
I'm Spencer from Ritte Cycles. Saw this conversation unfolding and thought I'd clear up the confusion. I believe there is too much smoke and mirrors in the carbon frame world, with most manufactures treating the origins of their bikes like shameful family secrets. Fact is almost everyone of you, no matter how proud you are of your BH or Colnago or Cervelo, are riding a frame made in one of a few Chinese factories. But that doesn't make them bad bikes, it actually makes them great bikes. China knows how to do carbon.

Pedal Force is a brand that buys large quantities of a factory's bare frames. Other brands have been similarly close to Pedal Force as well, a few years ago it was a Fondriest, though most people don't call Fondriests "generics." Fact is, the Bosberg is not a CG1 (just look at the chainstays), though they do share the same designer.

Our goal with Ritte is to supply racers and serious roadies the best possible bikes for a price that's just high enough that we can stay in business. One way we accomplished this was by partnering with a Taiwanese company that specializes in designing carbon frames. They have worked with some of the most coveted brands on the market, and we were lucky enough to work with them to develop the Bosberg. The design company holds the rights to the design and own the molds, and we don't have to pay for them, which means our customers don't have to pay for them. Of course, since we don't have exclusive rights, companies like PF can purchase frames made from the same mold. So maybe this year's Bosberg will indeed be next year's PF. It's either that, or the Bosberg ends up costing $3,200 instead of less than $1800.

Please feel free to visit the site and send us any other questions you may have.

Cheers.
