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.
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.
Sold as a frameset with the frame, ENVE Adventure fork, seat collar, thru-axles, and cable hardware, complete bikes will also be offered on a custom selected basis. 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.
