Grandis ‘Donna’ Ladies Road Bicycle. 48cm
Top quality complete bike with sloping top tube from historic framebuilder Cicli Grandis of Verona, Italy. The bike is in great condition with original paint and matching early Dura Ace groupset. This bicycle was assembled by us personally in our Berlin workshop, and everything works without fault.
Campagnolo dropouts on the front and rear are always a good indicator of a top frame, as they were only used on the very best bikes. Columbus SL tube set with 27.2mm seat post. The frame features many small details, including intricate lugs on the head tube, long tapered lugs on the seat tube and a quality bottom bracket shell made in Switzerland (fortunately Italian-threaded!). The seat stay caps feature the Grandis logo engraved in fine script. The bikes is set up with a single black 46-tooth Shimano Dura Ace chainring on Dura Ace crankset, with a custom machined and black-painted chainring guard. Original silver Dura Ace rear derailleur in top condition, as is the down tube mounted shifter lever. Up front is our custom-produced touring model handlebar, matched to a vintage 3ttt silver stem.
A Selle Royal Donna saddle in black leather atop the black fluted and polished Gipiemme seat post completes the bike. There is a very minor dent to the fork from a dynamo clamp that was previously installed – it doesn’t affect the ride, but we don’t want to hide anything. The bike is currently set up with a lightweight tubular wheel set, but this can be exchanged for a similar clincher wheel set if preferred – just ask .
