Shop Talk is a regular feature in which we take you through the technical characteristics of our bikes much the same way a shop owner might, should you visit one of our authorized dealers, with a few extra details you can only get here in Milan!
This week on “Shop Talk” #5 we take look at an urban classic from our range, the gazzetta, where old school track geometry meets ultra tough fabrication.
The Gazzetta track is the perfect combination of durability and speed.
Durability is given by the use of tough materials and manufacturing methods more akin to traditional city bikes whilst a traditional, old school, track geometry allows for the bicycle to still ride with the same agility and reactivity of pure track bikes.
Essential single-speed build allows for the bike to be pedalled immediately, straight out of the box whilst maintaining the possibility for quality upgrades in the future to make the bicycle truly yours.
Perfect for riders looking for low-maintenance track bike experience, able to handle all urban conditions.
