    Thank you very much, shall be some deep sections eventually for racing.
  • MatthewfalleMatthewfalle Posts: 17,380
    Deep sections needed all the time for that. It's lovely.

    Have been gazing at them for ages and waiting for someone I don't know to die and leave me enough money to get one fully kitted out with Red and some Lightweights. It's lovely.

    How do you find it compared to past bikes?

    Well my bike last season was a Planet X pro carbon. I have only done a little 30 mile ride on this yesterday and can feel a difference straight away. Much stiffer and seems to climb better but still similar geometry. I too was eyeing them up for a while, was a bit unsure as it's such a small name but happy I tool the plunge now.

    The Bosberg is a generic open mould frame (can't remember which company make it) with a very nice paint job.
    They look great!

    That's right very similar to a pedalforce, although this has the internal cable routing.

    Buy an open mold frame, get a nice paint job and BAM, you have a Ritte. With some money left over! No need to wait for a death to get one.

    Nap you know about these things. It looks like an ISP but the pics on the Ritte website suggest (to me at least) that it uses a conventional seatpost. Are the generic frames reasonably stiff or made from elastic bands?

    I've read on another forum that the Bosberg is a Pedal Force QS3. Ritte are quite open about having used an open mould for the Bosberg. Other companies are not. I've just bought the Van Vlaanderen and will be taking it to the shop to have it built this evening. I'm less sure whether this is an open mould. But they are very nice looking bikes and a bit unusual. Will probably put it up on here when built and will report on its ride as I have barely read any reviews so it's a bit of a gamble.
  • Don't know much about them but Wow! Love that colour scheme....especially the blue touches inside the forks.....needs more pictures please :D

    So glad it's not another bloody stealth monster..... :roll:

    Depends on the frame!
    The Vitus that is used by AN Post team is ridiculous. The frame flexes that much the rear tyres have the labels worn off. I was shocked when I was speaking to one of the riders and looking at the bike.

    The Bosberg is meant to be pretty damn good though.

    They're getting a new frame to solve that, the Vitesse was never fit for pro use, it's a sportive bike! :oops:
