I was in Morrissons doing a lunch time shop and saw a chap wandering the isles with this delectable looking bike! (http://rittecycles.com/carbon/vlaanderen-2013/) Never seen one before but it looked super swish! Does anyone no anything about Ritte Bikes or own one?
I was trying not to stare at it to much but i was transfixed!

Nice looking bikes. From what i've seen, they're a small American company who mostly offer high end custom carbon bikes and frames.. Not sure bout their reputation or quality as I've only ever seen one here but if they're speccing it with SRAM Red from what I can see in the pic above then they're going to be fairly high up there in terms of quality. I can see why he didn't want it to leave his sight.

There's a great story online about the guy who started the company. Google "Tour of Flanders 1919"

It was Morrissons in Salford which may answer your question!  3 haha

The picture doesnt really do it justice! I followed him round for a while trying to be inconspicuous and see the spec but i was unsuccessful!

I don't know much about these bikes, but the CycleLab in hackney (http://www.cyclelab.co.uk/) carries them. I think they might to UK distribution for Ritte, but not sure...

Yeah, I'd be wary of leaving my battered old GT outside mozzers in Salford, let alone that bad boy!

Does anybody else start to think of the chocolate bars after reading the name?

I saw a few people come into Cadence in Crystal Palace with various models of these. They look hot. Very pretty paint designs.

Ohhh crap. You seen the new Muur model? CF main tubes & fork, stainless steel lugs & rear triangle. I could see my credit card taking a beating for this!

Unfortunately, your timing's awful. Saving up to move house, or I'd probably have already taken it off your hands.

I regret every moment of buying a house, my bike parts consumption has dive bombed and my list of jobs to do have sky rocketted, forget the house, buy the frame is my advice to you  3
