“It’s not a bike, it’s art”: here’s what people are saying about the new road bike we’ve just assembled!
This is the first episode of 2022 in our popular series “Custom Bike of the Week”…
And the custom build we show you today is a spectacular one!
We’re waiting for the owner to pick it up in a few days when he’ll fly from the UK to visit us in Marostica…
Meaning that we have some time to share the highlights of this beauty!
The custom frame: model and finish
The frame is a Power+ EVO 2021 Edizione Anniversario, the limited edition launched last year to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary.
Andrew, the owner, was fast enough to secure his build slot just a few days before all the 70 frames available sold out.
Like all the Power+ EVO Edizione Anniversario, Andrew’s frame features a 24K gold-plated badge with the anniversary’s emblem and a tiny diamond.
Andrew’s color of choice is the antique bronze cromovelato, which fades to black in the lower areas of the frame.
The custom paint involved also the Deda Vinci handlebar, the Deda Vinci stem, and the Deda SuperZero seat post, all personalized in matching finish.
The build kit
The build kit includes a 12-speed SRAM Red eTap AXS groupset with 46-33 chainrings.
This innovative low-gear setup is ideal for making the hardest climbs – exactly what Andrew was looking for.
We completed the build with the Campagnolo Bora Ultra WTO 45 wheels. With their copper/bronze details, they perfectly match the bike’s overall aesthetic!
