Ciclitorino has born in Turin, Italy, inspired by the history of bicycle and its strong link with our city, and has now a wide developed range, that spaces from elegant urban bikes to high-end road bikes, all of them strictly. The basic concept was to create steel bikes, material in which we strongly believe due to its unique qualities, realized by the customer's wills, and in a bunch of years we created our whole range of bikes. What we have always wanted has been to craft our bikes in a traditional artisan way, and this is the reason why we design, craft and assemble our frames entirely here in Turin.
<p>Cycling is freedom, it is the pleasure of going far with my own means. For some years now I've been traveling by bicycle, discovering the territory and from this year my way of traveling has changed because now I have a made-to-measure bike for myself and the journey suddenly became easier and even more unique!</p>
The Transcontinental Race is an unsupported bike adventure; the rules are that you have to pass through four check points from the start and the end of the race (London-Istanbul at first) but you need to create your gps track about all the almost 4000 kms of the ride. In 2016 i did the #4 edition starting from the Kappelmuur of flanders in Gerardsbergen and i reached the final destination in Canakkale (Turkey) riding my “letal weapon”, a Ciclitorino VENTO RC that my friend Stefano provide form me to face the “Balcans way”. All was good, i had no troubles at all with the bike that was a perfect mix about comfortable rìding on the gravel roads in Bosnia and Makedonia and the lightweight-race geometry i need riding over 45.000 meters climbing the Alps. That year i ride the VENTO RC about 35.000 kms falling in love with her....STEEL IS REAL
