"The Marosticana smoothes everything out beautifully"

“I have tried to choose modern components that function well so that the bike has a classic look but modern performance (Campagnolo Athena 11s., Cinelli stem, Chris King headset with sealed bearings).

At last I have had some time to take the Marosticana out for her maiden ride. And a very enjoyable ride it was too.

My first impression is that of smoothness. The cycle lane that leads from my street in Scheveningen up the coast towards Katwijk is made up of bricks laid in a herringbone pattern which generally cause some vibration through the handlebars.

Not with the Marosticana however which smoothes everything out beautifully.

Even the speed bumps at junctions are less intrusive as she just sails over them with ease.

The ride overall was most enjoyable and I can’t wait to ride her again when I get home from Kazakhstan in April.”
