Ritte Esprit - Californian Dreaming!

Our client Tim rides a lot. Every day. For pure entertainment, Tim is riding every single road in The London A-Z! Which we think is astonishing and commendable. All of this has so far been transacted his increasingly aged but still spirited Ritte. By way of reciprocity, Tim has stayed loyal to Ritte and snagged the first Esprit carbon frame to come into the UK!

And this is the stunning result - Fresh from California - Ritte's brand new Esprit Frameset (including frame/forks/integrated bar/stem and seatpost. Built with new SRAM Force AXS 12 sp groupset, and from the UK, Hunt's range-topping Limitless 60 wheelset with ceramic bearings.

The Ritte Esprit is a very rare frame, made in tiny numbers. We think this is the only example in the UK.

What our clients say

  • "Rode my standard Box Hill loop this morning with the temp shims and more thought to position. Felt more connected and compact on the bike. Fastest ride of the year, picked up close to a km/per hour despite crappy wet pot holed roads, a ton of traffic and a couple of nights out Thu/Fri."

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."
