Perfect Rides -

 

I work with amazing frame artisans at Reparto Corse. In Italy my partners include Carrera, Casati, Ciocc, Olmo, Pantani, Tommasini, and Torelli. My American partners are Calfee, Cielo, Independent Fabrication, Soma, and Waterford. All provide a palette that starts with a correct bike fitting.

 

These are some of the perfect rides created at Reparto Corse
Ciocc Carbon
Ciocc Carbon

Ciocc built this frame as a customizable two part monocoque. Ciocc is known for an incredibly smooth ride thanks to a relaxed front geometry. At about 1000 grams with Record 11 parts it's light and perfect for long rides in the country.

Torelli Corsa Pista
Torelli Corsa Pista

The Corsa Pista is built in a small artisan shop near Milan. The geometry makes it at home on the track, but it can also be set up as a fixed-gear bike for road use as we did here. Custom touches are the drilled rear brake bridge and bottle cage drillings.

The Retro is made with lugged Zona steel tubing from the famed tubing house of Columbus. The steel frame renaissance in America helped convince Ciocc to bring this classic style frame back into production. A fantastic ride in the modern tradition.

Soma Rush

The Soma Rush handling is fast enough for track racing and smooth enough for road riding. Thanks to the Tange Prestige steel tubes power transfer is very good whether sprinting or cranking uphill. The frame and fork are drilled for brakes. This happens to be one of my great rides!
