Thanks to the guys at Sports Garage for donating this awesome bike.
Saying it’s fast is kinda cliche, but it is. In fact, it’s not just fast, the Vlaanderen is a damn rocket from Hades. It’s asphalt-devouringly stiff and yet paradoxically comfortable to ride. Much like Eddy having his morning coffee, the Vlaanderen is a monster in a silk robe.
The Vlaanderen is constructed from the highest quality, high-modulus carbon and features a BB30 bottom bracket system and massive chain stays for power transfer, a tapered steer tube for precise handling and an integrated seat mast to convey all those lovely road sensations straight to the rider. The geometry was developed to be a good all-around competition rig: as comfortable on day-long rides is it is confident in hectic criteriums. Take it down a high-speed descent and you’ll really see where the Vlaanderen is a true stand-out; its slightly longer than typical wheelbase give it conference-inspiring stability while its rigid front and rear end give you the power to carve the corners.
The Vlaanderen is constructed by one of the highest quality factories in Asia that is responsible for many other well-known framesets that retail for much more. Ritte’s aim is to provide an excellent bikes at reasonable prices to people who want to ride something a little different than the status quo.
