Single speed cross in SoCal is big, with 30-40 racers in the A field each weekend. A lot of the elite-class racers have found a new love for the single speed A’s, which is where Gareth races his US-built Ritte Blue Ribbon Steel CX belt drive.

This is about as balleur as a single speed cross bike gets. The new Ritte Racing team rider Ben Jacques-Maynes is tearing apart SoCal’s cross races on this beast. Equipped with the 2012 TRP Parabox Hydraulic disk brakes, it’s good to go.
Ritte, we wanna see more ASAP! Maybe I’ll track down Ben at the SSCXWC in LA next week to shoot some photos.

For 2013 Ritte is bringing something different to their line and it’s not a new bike. Their women’s team was getting tired of winning every weekend so they figured they’d make it official. Check out the 2013 Ritte women’s cycle team sponsor book above.
Yummy! This morning, while trying to knock back a few cold ones (that’s code for emails), I popped onto Facebook to see these three belt-drive beauties staring me down. I like Steel and I like cross bikes. Ritte’s ok too, I guess. Kidding aside, head to the Ritte FB to catch the entire set.
Road season isn’t even over yet and already people are juiced about cross season. Adding to the squeeze is the new Ritte Racing 2013 Crossberg. I can’t even begin to compete with their copy, so I’ll leave the linguistics to them: “Stiffer, smoother, svelter and more aggressive than last year’s edition…”
