Excuse the iPhone photo, but I loved this bike. It's by Ritte Van Vlaanderen. Here's the story behind the company.
"The very nature of riding a bicycle is to have fun and be free, so pretense and attitude just doesn’t have a place in our world. Ritte Van Vlaanderen Bicycles began with this simple goal: to offer cyclists the best possible racing bicycles at the best possible value. No gimmicks, no attitude, no BS.
We're a small company devoted to offering dedicated enthusiasts and racers the best racing bikes at the best possible prices. If we couldn't do this with the best intentions, then we wouldn't do it at all, so please feel free to contact us with any questions, comments, critiques and/or excellent slow-cooker recipes you can think of. "
I liked these bikes. They were different and had some nice edginess to them. They're definitely worth a second look.
And on that note, I'm getting a little bored about bike reviews now. Onto something else!
