"The attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship are just sublime"

“WOW !!!!!!!!!

Even better than I was expecting Alex. Totally stunning. I’ve owned a lot of bicycle frames since 1981 and this is, without doubt, the most beautiful.

Inside the bottom bracket shell you can feel that the tube mitres are just spot on. The attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship are just sublime.

The detailed touches – the pantographed lugs, headtube, brake bridge, crown, bb shell AND the top tube plaque – are very special and THAT finish. WOW!

I can’t wait to get it built up and head out riding.

Thank you Alex and thank you Giovanni.

You know a lot of people around the world will have bought bicycles today. I would bet that none are as pleased as I am and I would bet double that no one else will have bought something as special as I have.

Steel – in a world of generic plastic frames – it’s the future.”
