The name Spezzotto has been kicking around the Italian bike racing world for a long time.
There was a bike mechanic named Ricardo Spezzotto who worked in the Treviso area in the 1920′s. We think it was Ricardo’s son Antonio Spezzotto who opened a bike shop in Conegliano in the 1950′s. We know for sure that in the 1970′s a second-tier pro team G.S. Serrande raced around on Spezzotto bikes. It’s a fact that today you could walk into Cicli Spezzotto if you’re in the Treviso area and roll out with a new bike.
Want a Spezzotto road bike but don’t want to walk all the way to Italy? You can walk into our shop and roll out with one now.
This frame was a trade-in. It was made in the early ’90′s of Columbus Aluthron aluminum tubing, and it will fit a rider in the 5’5″ to 5’7″ height range quite well.
We built the bike with a mix of Campagnolo Chorus and Record equipment, it has Campy Neutron model wheels and a Kestrel carbon fiber handlebar. While it looks like a bit of a vintage ride, the materials and design are quite modern. You get a compact crankset so the gearing is pretty easy on the hills, and with all of the carbon fiber bits and pieces the bike end up weighing only 18 pounds. Oh, and it will only set you back $1500.
