Roma, backdrop for another Crisp custom titanium bike | Crisp Titanium

Rome wasn’t built in a day…

Posted by on Nov 12, 2012 in Journal Post | 12 Comments

…and neither was Nicola’s bike.

After waiting patiently, Nicola picked up his new frameset at Eroica this year. I just received the DVD of photos that he sent after taking a few rides, talk about bike porn. Only in Rome can you find a backdrop like that. A bow of gratitude to the photographer Martina Comuzzi who took the time to immortalize this bike with her great work. Stunning!

As you can see, he didn’t spare any expense in building up the bike. Campy 11v drivetrain topped of with a Pegoretti Falz fork tied in with King NTS classic cups. A mix of time-tested bad-assedness with a modern twist. Nicola is a ti aficionado, having owned various ti bikes over his cycling career. It was another great collaboration, bringing together all the desires he had into one bike.

Congratulations Nicola on your new ride and thanks to you and Martina Comuzzi for the photos!!

ciao!

    Alla prossima!

    Hi Darren,

    Found you through my mate Andy White. Beautiful work! I’m a proud owner of a Pegoretti Marcelo but hope to one day try ti… a visit to Tuscany is certainly a bonus.

    Is the fork on this bike Dario’s Falz? Love the Ciavete collaboration on that bike in your studio too!

      glad you like the work. it was great to meet your bud Andy, quite a fun chat we had. next time you’ll have to come over and make the short trip down from L’Eroica and come by for a beer.

      Ciao Nicola,

      You are very lucky to have such beautiful bikes. I met Dario at his workshop before I got my Marcelo. I hope to one day return to Italy to ride it there in the mountains.

      Ride safe!

    Sharp bike, wonderful locale. But too bad for the FAIL.

    Don’t they know it is written…

    Never dost thou photograph thy steed in the small ring.

    Even still, great pics.
