Wherever you go, the Travelissimo can go with you in style. This bicycle fits in a specially-designed rolling Samsonite suitcase with minimal weight increase and incredible convenience when traveling. By utilizing S and S Machineworksâ„¢ super-strong torque couplers weâ€™re able to construct a two-piece steel, 953, or titanium frame that doesn’t incur airline size surcharges but gives up none of the feel of your favorite bicycle.
Our standard Travelissimo is a short-wheelbase/short-reach caliper sport bike designed to take up to a 29mm tire, typically designed to have a touch more stability than its race-bred Gran Paradiso brethren. Classic or Strada Bianca models may also be built with the coupler option for true go-anywhere/anytime capabilities.
