Well, here are some projects we’ve been working on and that we expect to see on the website soon:
Crema Classic: We’re liking the sales of Crema and the idea of a size chart seems to be working well – who knew? So now we add Crema Classic: Crema using the same chart but this time silver-brazed by Martin using Sachs Issimo lugs. We scrub a little labor compared to our Team Pro by using socket-style rear drop outs, flat seat stay caps, fewer frills, and a straight fork. But it’s still the same tubes/lugs/builder/painter/etc. $2300, built to order.
MAX: Steve’s favorite Columbus Life-based tubing continues to be a winner and now gets its own page. The basic version will involve an Enve 2.0 carbon fork, room for 28mm tyres, and short-reach calipers – but alternate brakes and forks will be offered for those that want ’em. $2400, custom.
Team Pro OS: By using Darrell LLewellyn’s new Cadenzia lugs paired with Dario Pegoretti/Richard Sachs’ Spirit for Lugs tubing from Columbus we get the Team Pro OS (for “oversized”, natch). Larger diameter tubes, socket-style rear dropouts, fillet-brazed seat cluster, choice of steel or carbon fork – but the same great ride as before. $2700, custom.
Sterrato – Meaning “dirt road” in our favorite Romantic language, Sterrato uses a similar size chart to Crema but we add Paul Racer M brakes for better stopping power, additional mud clearance, and a slightly longer wheelbase for more stability. So now we have a great welded bike suitable for bombing dirt roads and trails or as a cyclocross bike for drier/faster courses – and it still works fine as a commuter/allrounder. $2000 in steel/$3000 in titanium, built to order. (Paul brakes are $225-ish/bike)
