Aprica is the end of one of the queen stages of the Giro d’Italia, sometimes preceding the Mortirolo, who arrives with the maglia rosa in Aprica is usually the winner. It is also the result of a joint work with José Luis, a Sevillian enthusiast of the classic Bianchis of the 70’s, who wanted us to manufacture a bicycle inspired by those times.
We have used Columbus SL set tubes for frame and fork.
The geometry has been forced to be able to achieve that the horizontal top tube is 0 degrees with respect to the horizontal of the ground, a very important detail for the construction of this frame. The fittings were slightly modified to achieve angles and to be able to adjust the 515 mm c-c of the seat tube and the 520 mm c-c of the top tube.
The painting is completed by Rakhor Cycles and the final assembly by Ciclos La Universal. A mix of Shimano and Suntour NOS components, plus some new Velo Orange classic parts.
José Luis, is happy with the result of this bike with which he trains daily since he was an amateur cyclist, and he has the nerve in his legs.
