Bike of The Week: Ritte Phantom Steel

A legacy designer gives it one last shot

 

Ritte has been a  SoCal brand for a few years and as a new carbon frame is in the works,  they are jumping into the new year with a duo of steel bikes; the Phantom road and Satyr gravel bikes, both which feature elegantly made frames made with Reynolds steel tubes and designed by legacy east coast frame builder Tom Kellogg .

The elegant seatstay bridge is a nice touch. There’s room for up to a 30mm tire.

The Phantom is available as a complete bike or a frameset with three stock build packages, each including rider-choice gearing and cockpit sizing.
