Ritte Cycles, everybody’s favorite faux Belgian bicycle brand, has done it again with the 2014 Aluminum Crossberg. The 6061 aluminum alloy frame features quick and nimble geometry purpose built for racing. The frame has cantilever and disc mounts (convenient!), and comes equipped with a full carbon cantilever fork and a Chris King In Set tapered headset. You can also equip the frame with an Enve disc fork for an upgrade price.

Here are your options:

  • Crossberg frame with stock full carbon fork… $1390
  • Crossberg frame with Enve disc fork… $1740

The Crossberg’s blue, black, and yellow colorway is sure to make you stand out wherever you ride.

  • 31.8 Front Derailleur clamp diameter
  • 44 Internal Diameter Headtube comes tapered to 1-1/4″ on the Cantilever fork model and 1-1/2″ on the Disc fork model
  • Chris King Inset headset equipped (not shown)
  • PF30 Bottom bracket shell

That’s tight

The 2014 Aluminum Crossberg was produced in a limited run of only 75 framesets. So if you haven’t ordered yours already, please do so soon. Ritte Cycles is already running quite low on some sizes.

If you place an order now, your frame will land in our shop in very early September, just in the nick of time for cyclocross season. Our ace mechanics can help you pick the right parts kit for your racing rig, and build the bike up for you in our pro workshop.

On the fence? Our shop cyclocross team (that’s Joe and Joe, to their fans) will be racing on Crossbergs this year. Come in to the shop and pick their brains on why the Ritte Crossberg is their racing steed of choice.
