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.
The bike has been built by us personally in our Berlin workshop, and everything works without fault.
Campagnolo dropouts on the front and rear (a good indicator of a top frame, as they were only used on the very best bikes), and Columbus SL tubeset with 27.2mm seatpost. The frame features many small details including intricate lugwork to the headtube, long tapered lugs on the seat tube and a quality bottom bracket shell made in Switzerland (fortunately Italian-threaded!). The seatstay 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 downtube-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 seatpost 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. See the fifth photo.
The bike is currently set up with a lightweight tubular wheelset, but this can be exchanged for a similar clincher wheelset if preferred – just ask .
We’ve set the bike up according to our taste, with a view to preserving the classic look and style. In saying that, if you would like to make some small changes (saddle, bar tape etc), then often this is possible. We have a large inventory of classic components acquired over the last 13 years and are happy to do our best to accommodate any request.
