Congratulations to André Schönhofer from Mainz. He’s the new courier sprint world champion. Best of all: he raced on a Cicli Berlinetta Pista frame, that he won at the ECMC 2010 in Budapest. And he’s still riding it very happily.
Before this very-special-order frameset is packed up and posted all the way to sunny California to it’s expectant owner, we found the time to snap these photos. You’re looking at a unique piece, a filet-brazed track frame which comes supplied with two pairs of forks! One takes a full size front wheel, the second accomodates a smaller pursuit-size front wheel. Both forks continue the dark orange, black and white striped paintscheme which slopes forwards, accentuating the rider’s crouch. Our framebuilder paid special attention to the geometry of this frameset, to ensure that it ‘works’ with either of the forks installed. In addition to a full complement of Cicli Berlinetta Crown motifs, the owner’s initials can be seen on the underside of the downtube just above the bottom bracket shell. There’s no doubt about it, this is one hot piece of triple-butted Niobium Columbus steel!
As if you didn’t know already, we offer lustworthy custom-made framesets in just about every possible permutation of style, colour, etc. At reasonable prices, and in a not unreasonable time frame too. Seen here a couple of snaps of some of our more recent concoctions. Call us to discuss the perfect frame for your next bike!
Our very latest creation, the ‘Crono’ features a curved seat and top tube, for a short wheelbase and aerodynamic rider position. Shown here in black and orange
This example was assembled with a specially colour anodised groupset and the painted accent graphics colour matched, for a unique and highly stylish look.
Here it is; the next level of handbuilt frame from Cicli Berlinetta. Exquisite detail and painstakingly airbrushed paintwork and graphics set the ‘Doppia Pista’ apart from the competition.
Seen here is a ‘Doppia Pista’ in Italian national colours. This custom frameset, inspired by a Gianni Motta classic, is assembled with a full Campagnolo group and our own brand mid-section wheelset, finished with complimentary coloured tyres and tri-colour Bennoto tape.
Nice, eh? We sure think so. Enquire for price details.
