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.

  • "Thanks very much Phil. Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects! Cheers, Ian "

    Time-Triallist (70+)

  • "I'm new to cycling so needed some support on finding a bike that would be right for me. Julian couldn't have been kinder or more supportive, he took time to find out what I wanted from my cycling and then looked closely at my physical structure to ensure that the bike is a comfortable fit for me. It really is a 5 star service and far exceeded my expectations."

  • "The personal service from both Phil and Julian is second to none. They have such a wealth of experience in fitting that they can almost tell at a glance if something is just a little off. It felt as though it didn't matter how long it took to get the best position possible - even for an amateur cyclist like myself. Can't recommend them enough."

  • "I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
