Ritte Crossberg Disc Frameset
Ritte has announced the Crossberg Disc, a $1250 cyclocross frameset meant for epic rides and ripping it during ‘cross season. Like any cycling niche, there a thousand different philosophies on how to make the best bike and Ritte sought out to make a balanced ride, not too extreme in any given direction while still having a race heritage and making use of the latest headtube and bottom bracket standards. The frame is available in five sizes and is made from 7005 series aluminum with a matching full carbon disc fork. The routing is external and meant for mechanical (rather than electronic) shift systems, though you could easily use a PF30 eccentric adapter to drop the gears altogether come race season. Definitely more performance than commuter — you’ll have to use clip on fenders if you’re looking to avoid the skunk stripe.
