Bought this bike to replace my 20 year old Ti Eddy Merck. Living in northeastern VT, I wanted something as an alternative to my gravel bike, that could handle the broken pavement and gravel roads here. I needed clearance for 32 mm tires, hydro disc brakes, and a quality steel frame. I got all that and more! This bike rides like a dream. Amazing road feel, good power transfer, and corners and descends like a demon! The attention to detail and build quality are real attention grabbers, too. Ritte customer service is outstanding. After my frame was damaged in shipping, Elijah handled it with the utmost professionalism and satisfaction. He even threw in some stainless steel cages and Ritte bottles before shipping back to me. It is clear their focus is providing the best experience and product possible for the customer. FYI, I'm 5'8", 30" inseam, and the size small Phantom frame fits perfectly.
