The allure of steel within the cycling world is impossible to ignore or deny- it was the first material used for bicycles and is still one of the most popular and loved, nearly 200 years after the bicycle was invented. It can be argued that no other frame material produces the quality of ride, especially when you consider relative cost. Modern steel tubing has come a long, long way and even "inexpensive" steel tubing today has weight and performance qualities similar to the "high end" tubing from 20 years ago.
For some people, steel is a new "fad" to be exploited within the market, but it's never left our blood even for a day. Our love of steel runs deep... way deep. It has always made us chuckle a bit when we read magazine reviews or marketing from other brands that tout their latest new Uber Material bike as having "a ride quality similar to steel". Why settle for similar when you can have the real thing? Nothing embodies our motto of "it's all about the ride" better than our steel series of bikes.
The Speciale is the origin of the steel series for us. Beautiful double butted chromoly tubing with sexy seat stays, beautiful compact rear dropouts, a gorgeous lugged steel fork and a parts blend that produces an incredible bike for the money. And, before we forget, you just can't beat the looks of the bike with every detail tied together- the metallic Ruby Red paint, the white cable housing, white saddle artwork, white tires, white bar tape and the classic black and white panel graphics... the Speciale is a thing of absolute beauty.
Not just a pretty paint job over some nice steel tubes, the Speciale is a fantastic riding bike too. The geometry is a perfect blend of performance and stability- quick handling with a very stable feel for all day riding. You can race the pack or just chase your dreams- your choice.
The Speciale is ready and waiting to join you on your journey from hectic to happy.
