  • A new custom Pista frameset in jolly festive colours

    A good client of ours decided to treat himself to a brand new made-to-measure track frame and fork, and we helped him choose an eye catching combination of colours to make it look as good as it rides. You really can’t say anything uncomplimentary about a deep Bordeaux red metallic set off with black and gold accents, and this is certainly a colour scheme which will never go out of style. Not only that, it is quite in keeping with the festive season.

  • The sun is out, but our Work’Shop is open!

    We’d like nothing more than to shut up shop and go for a lovely bike ride in the summer sun. We’re feeling dutiful, so we’re in our Work’Shop, and ready to put everybody’s bicycles in tip-top working order. That way we can all enjoy the sun together, and the cycle paths will be a happy place, full of smiling cyclists, riding roadworthy machines, ensuring all and sundry are safe!

    …the more they stay the same!

    It has been fifteen years (!) since Dustin first opened a bicycle shop in the trendy Berlin suburb of Prenzlauer Berg, with the name Cicli Berlinetta emblazoned above the door!
