The Strada is based off our best selling, steel framed cyclocross bike, The Volpe.
It features the same double butted Bianchi Cro-Mo tubing, tire clearance for a 38c tire, and geometry based off endurance bikes. Our exclusive TIG welded; steel Bianchi Cro-Mo frame and steel fork provide a smooth ride. Steel tubing is herald as the best value for bike construction when it comes to strength and vibration damping. Whether you’re navigating the Great Allegheny Passage to DC or the greenway during your work commute, you need to be comfortable on the bike.
A relaxed head tube angle is the basis of the Strada geometry. This angle is a bit slacker than a standard performance road bike allowing you smooth and predictable handling aboard the Strada. The chainstays have been stretched rearward and at the rear drop outs you will find rack/fender bosses. Mid mount bosses on the fork permit the use of front panniers. A pump peg behind the head tube gives you a reason to carry a classic hand pump on all your journeys.
The Strada uses Shimano's Claris build group, cantilever brake set, and a riser bar instead of a drop bar. The stock tires are Vittoria Randonneur 28c with a reflective sidewall for high visibility during low light riding conditions.
