In late 2019, Ritte announced two new steel steeds – the Phantom and the Satyr. Both bikes were meticulously designed by Tom Kellogg, and then made overseas to Ritte’s exact spec. However, if you’re holding out for a Tom Kellogg designed frame that’s made in the USA, this is your chance – though inventory is very limited.

Ritte Satyr 2.0 titanium gravel frame

Once again, Ritte is partnering with Tom Kellogg on the design but the Satyr 2.0 is made from titanium. And built-in Portland, Oregon. Crafted from an oversized titanium tubeset, the frame gets attention at the swaged and tapered top tube for increased comfort, stability, and stiffness, and ovalized tube junctions for further durability and stiffness.

Like the original Satyr, Satyr 2.0 gets a T47 threaded bottom bracket with full internal cable routing. New for the 2.0 is increased 700c x 50mm or 650b x 2.2″ tire clearance. The frame is also fender ready front and rear.

Frames include flat mount disc brake fittings for 160mm rotors, a 44mm headtube, and a 27.2mm seat tube with dropper post compatibility.

Frames will include a standard finish with brushed titanium and etched logos, though optional custom paint and bead-blasted finishes are available for an additional cost.

Limited to just 20 frames, the Satyr 2.0 will start at $4,450 for the frameset or around $6,950 for a “well equipped” bike with Rival AXS eTap and HED wheels.

      They’re probably Deda stays. Tapered CP Ti.

      FWIW, these are built by Oscar Camerena, who builds bikes for a lot of people. BikeRumor should interview him…it would be interesting

        ^This. People rail about what “dentists buy” but give the snotty, judgmental cyclists a pass. Why not just let people ride what they want and enjoy cycling how they choose?

    Such a pretty tube set, but then they went and put the fork-equivalent of Hammer Pants on it. Enve fork crowns are horrible to the eye. What is the obsession with people wanting carbon forks on Ti frames?
    Why are metal forks dead?

    Frame looks like wireless shifting only, missing cable guides for mech. shifting, both front and rear. No analog allowed!

      housings run all internal. not sure if there is a port for 2x traditional shifting, but the rear der exit port is very likely out the end of the drive side chainstay. The entry port is on the non drive of the DT. the photo only shows the single housing “cap” for the internal port, but those ports have options to run 1 or 2 housings or wires thru them. It is also very possible that his was the protoype for the batch run so not all the advertised features are on there, ie mechanical 2x.

    I did, a 50 year old that is not a dentist but has in fact worked his butt off to be able to afford such things; who’s decision to purchase was fully supported by their partner because I ride over 10K miles/700 hours per years and wanted a Tom Kellogg geometry Titanium gravel bike, because my Tom Kellogg steel all road bike rides so amazingly well. Because they have great details in addition to the geo. Because the tube set (particularly chain stays) is unique. Because the craftsmanship of Oscar Camarena is some of the best in the US. I could go on but those are the biggest reasons why this sort of ppl bought the bike.
