Selling a beautiful Italian built road bike. Torelli is an American importer who contracts some of the best builders in Italy to make their own line of frames. Torelli defines the Corsa Strada as such:
"the geometry is a classic stage racing geometry with a horizontal top tube. The Columbus steel construction gives the Corsa Strada a great feel of the road. The compliance makes it comfortable for hours in the saddle. "
This particular frame is one of the last built using lugs rather than TIG welding which reinforces high-stress areas and as you can see from the pictures, adds to the beauty of the frame. The seat tube measures 58cm ctc 59cm ctt with a 57cm ctc top tube, so probably best for riders 5'8"-6'1' or so. It also features a carbon fork to lighten up the front end.
The bike is built with a full 2x8 Shimano Ultegra 600 'Tri-Color' group which has bee fully overhauled, including:
- Full STI shifter/brake lever rebuild
- Bearing replacement on headset, hubs and bottom bracket
- Full cleaning and detailing of all components
- New cables, housing, chain and bar wrap installed
This classic bike has been restored to near new condition and is the perfect fit for a rider looking to upgrade or a collector looking for a fine Italian stead on a budget. Asking $400 for the bike as pictured, and I can throw in a pair of flat or spd pedals as well. The current framesets alone are selling for over $1400 here: http://torelli.com/shop/corsa-strada/ so you can see this is a world class build for pennies on the dollar. Please see pics for details, text or email with questions or to set up a time to take a look. Cheers!
