Italian road bikes gallery - Eurobike 2013

Pinarello, Colnago, De Rosa, Basso, Fondriest and more

For 2014, most of the world’s bicycles will be built in Asia, but Italian road bike brands are still forging ahead, with manufacturers such as De Rosa, Colnago and Pinarello all proud of their heritage.

The limited edition Sessanta De Rosa range, for example, celebrates 60 years of Italian bicycle craftsmanship, with custom models in steel, aluminum, titanium and carbon. With price tags of up to €11,000, 60 bikes will be made in each of the four materials at the company’s Italian factory.

Elsewhere, Pinarello have been showing off the winning Tour de France bikes of Chris Froome at Eurobike 2013, complete with grease on the stay from chainslap. And Basso have displayed an interesting stem and headset spacer design that neatly matches head tube width.
